Binningup promises bigger, better festival
Binningup promises bigger, better festival

This year’s Binningup Spring Festival promises to be a bumper event with a strong focus on family entertainment.

Banners have been set up from Australind to Harvey and Brunswick to encourage people to mark Saturday on their calendar.

For more than 20 years, members of the Binningup community have come together to put on an action-packed community event which attracts a lot of residents and visitors from surrounding towns.

The committee of Keryn Williams, Philly Oppert, Simone Anderson, Tanya Powell and Sharon Rowles are a group of mums who are organising the festival on behalf of the Binningup Community Association.

Lotterywest funding has increased to more than $9000 for advertising and operating costs and the committee successfully applied for the Harvey Shire Community Benefits Package.

Further support from Alcoa, Simcoa Operations, BHP Billiton Worsley Alumina, Cristal Global, the Water Corporation and the Southern Seawater Desalination Plant and Mirvac, as well as local businesses, enable organisers to offer free entry, rides and activities.

“The Binningup Spring Festival is a celebration with the local community to enjoy a free, family fun day,” Mrs Williams said.

“Feedback from stallholders and visitors shows everyone loves the friendly atmosphere.”

The event kicks off at 10am with a decorated bicycle competition and runs until 3pm.
