Today’s Chisholm & Gamon blog is a taster of what will be a wonderful community event this Sunday 4th of December – the Elwood Village Festival! Supported by Chisholm & Gamon since its inception, we’re proud to be involved again in 2011′s family festival.
Starting at 12pm (which gives you ample time for a sleep in and late brekky), the Elwood Village Festival takes place on Ormond Road between Beach Avenue and Pine Avenue. You can find the Chisholm & Gamon team assisting the Elwood Life Saving Club by providing a sausage sizzle with tasty snags, bread and tomato sauce – complete with staff to help the life savers cook, serve and sell sausages. This means that 100% of the profits go directly to the Elwood Life Saving Club’s projects. A good (and dare we say it, tasty) venture! We’ll also be handing out jolly orange C&G balloons by the dozen to children attending the festival. Over the years our orange balloons have proved a ‘must have’ accessory for festival goers – we started with 250 balloons when the Elwood Village Festival began but have now increased supplies to 1000! Chisholm & Gamon staff have already started inflating and tying up our biodegradable balloons for Sunday’s celebration. A special mention must be made of Managing Director Torsten Kasper who is on the organising committee for the festival.
Some of the events you can look forward to on Sunday include:
- African drumming workshop
- Mad Hatter’s Colouring-In Tea Party
- Roving performers
- Musical performances by both St Columbus and Elsternwick Primary Schools
- Gourmet food stalls
- Petting zoo and face painting
- A drop-in visit from Santa
- Local traders with showbags and special ‘Village Festival’ promotions
