This weekend there are two events you might like to take your kids or grandchildren to (or simply enjoy yourself) .. the only down side is they are both on Saturday but I think with a little juggling I can manage both: 1)
This year the Georges River CrossCurrents Art & Environment Festival celebrates the environmental, artistic, recreational, and cultural diversity of the Georges River catchment. The GRCCC and Bankstown Arts Centre are co-hosting the Cross Currents Art & Environment Festival on Saturday 17 November from 11am to 3pm at Garrison Point (Georges Hall) off Henry Lawson Drive. See map here.
The festival is a free, family-friendly event featuring the live music from the Stiff Gins and My Sauce Good; dance and performances from Aboriginal, Samoan, Torres Strait and Chinese groups; 30-minute presentations from Tim Silverwood, Professor Heather Goodall and Lesley Diver from the Hawkesbury-Nepean Catchment Management Authority; delicious food, art workshops by Reverse Garbage; interactive Riverbank art exhibitions and workshops; a Bushtucker walk, a sustainability showcase and recreational groups. Visit the website for more. For more information contact firstname.lastname@example.org
2) The Opening of Brownes Farm Reserve First Avenue, Hoxton Park… 11am – 1pm. lots of activities and a Free BBQ lunch… A great opportunity to see how your rates dollars are spent for the benefit of the community. Definitely worthy of your time IMHO.
