Winter Wonderland comes to Springvale this July
13 July 2017
Come and play at Snow Fest 2017 and experience all the fun of the snow right in the heart of Springvale.
More than 80 tonnes of snow will be trucked the three hours from Mt Buller to the corner of Buckingham and Balmoral avenues in Springvale for the July 30 event.
Now in its fifth year the event attracts an average of 40,000 visitors each year and runs from 12pm to 7pm.
Greater Dandenong Mayor Cr Jim Memeti said Snow Fest was one of the city’s most popular street festivals.
He said since it began it had won a number of highly-regarded tourism awards including best tourism event in Victoria.
“This festival allows people to experience all the fun of the snow without having to leave Melbourne,” he said.
“It is a sight to behold to see Springvale transformed into a winter wonderland.”
Entry to the snow play areas is free, rides start at $2 and there will be plenty of free family entertainment for everyone.
If your little ones love winter sports, then why not try Burton Riglet, a fun activity teaching 3-6 year olds to snowboard.
Live acts will perform across two stages including a youth stage where performances will include the FReeZA Push Start Battle of the Bands competition heat and a main stage where visitors will be able to enjoy magic acts, live music and dance.
There will also be roving performers including snow angels, polar bears and giant penguin puppets.
The night will conclude with a spectacular fireworks display at 6.50pm.
This year’s event sponsors are Mt Buller, Hit 101.9 The Fox and TVB Australia.
Free parking is available at the number 8 car park off Balmoral Avenue and the Springvale City Hall site.
