Bleach Festival.jpg is all about an invitation – to you, our friends, neighbours, and visitors – and what better way to kick-off three weeks of fun than with an invitation to party?
The city is alive … it’s festival season and time to celebrate! Bleach is kicking off this year’s party with some Australia’s finest musicians and performers, including musical juggernaut and masters of fun, the Melbourne Ska Orchestra. Led by the energetic and charismatic Nicky Bomba (John Butler Trio, Bomba, Bustamento), Melbourne Ska Orchestra is a 36-piece force-to-be-reckoned-with, renowned for their inimitable spin on the ska genre. Featuring Mighty Duke and the Lords as supporting performers, it’ll be an amazing night! Having wowed audiences of all ages the world over now is your chance to dance the night away or kick back with a picnic under the stars – whatever your jam.
So save the date and rally your tribe for this free, explosive and infectious night of live performance by the lake at Bond University.

Easter-2018-baner-jpg.jpgThe Lanes in Mermaid Waters will be the place to be on Saturday March 31 as the Easter Street Food Market dishes up a smorgasbord of free family fun. Kicking off at 3:00 pm, there will be over 35 of the coast’s finest food trucks including all of your usual favourites – paella, churros, German sausages, Mexican, organic food, loaded fries, satay sticks, show-stopping desserts and plenty of gluten free and allergy friendly options. Once you’ve had your fill, browse stalls brimming with unique, vintage and homemade goodies.

Got the little folk in tow? There will be plenty of things to keep them occupied including a free jumping castle, rock climbing wall and craft corner. And because it’s Easter, there will even be a free Easter Egg Hunt thanks to the legends at Belgian Delights! Just be on the lookout for the golden tickets hidden around the market. There will be live music throughout the afternoon and into the evening so what else is there to do other than kick back, relax and enjoy a mighty fine time. Oh and bring the pooch! The food market is an outdoor dog-friendly event.
