The Seddon Fun and Games fair is returning for another year of family friendly fun.

Seddon Village Traders Association president Suzanne Saunders said this event will bring back old favourites as well as new surprises.

“It is a community day that is all about what is best in Seddon,” she said.

“The closure of Greig Street will create space for local community groups and activities including the dunk tank, face painters, roving entertainers and local community group activities.

“Harris Reserve will be home to the community stage with space for visitors to relax on the grass.”

Ms Saunders said food and beverages will not be available onsite but many of the local businesses will be providing additional take away options.

“We want to help residents engage with our businesses, we will have a food map so people are aware of which shops they can go to for food.”

Scheduled events include a dog parade, Santa visit, the Great Waiter’s Race, dunk tank, Princess on Skates, Glee West Choir, Drag Queen MC, Tongan Choir, roving entertainment, Colombian dancing, games and activities.

“This event is all about bringing the community together which we haven’t been able to do for a few years,” said Ms Saunders.

“We have such a wonderful community and local business owners , it is a really community festival for all of Seddon.”

All funds raised from the hamper raffle and dunk tank will be donated to Foodbank.

The event, run by the association and sponsored by Maribyrnong council will be held on Saturday, November 25, from 12pm-5pm.
