THE streets of Shepparton’s CBD are set to come alive, with preparations being finalised for the 2016 Summer City Market this Friday, February 26 and Saturday, February 27.
This year, the community has the chance to look forward to a few new additions to the jam packed entertainment across the CBD including a much anticipated hot dog eating competition run by Wendy’s, SPC Perfect Fruit Van, People Supporting People food truck and the Australian Hearing Bus. The Victoria Police Pipe Band will also be back this year as well as the ever popular Adrian Parsons with Loose Goose jazz band, and an African dance performance and much more.
Greater Shepparton City Council, economic development officer, Rohan Sali added, “This year we are going to see a few new things that have never been seen at the Summer City Market.
“Excitement is building for the hot dog eating competition.
“Across both days we will have entertainment from Enchanted Rainbow, face painting, balloon creations, roving entertainment, an undercover sand pit play area, giant games and craft workshop, a shark obstacle course and jumping castle as well as an undercover animal nursery and plenty of local entertainment and dance performance.
“We also have over 40 market stalls, where great bargains will be on offer.”
