With organisers busily preparing for the second annual TatFest next year, they are encouraging locals to plant a pumpkin ahead of the big event.
The event is run by the Lions Club of Tatura and event organiser Malcolm Campbell said there would be a few changes to the festival, due to take place on Sunday, March 4 next year.
‘‘We’ll be running a pumpkin-growing competition,’’ he said.
‘‘So we’re encouraging everyone to plant their pumpkins now in time for the event.’’
Mr Campbell said next year’s festival would see an increase in live entertainment after organisers receiving feedback following the first event, held earlier this year.
‘‘We’ll have the busking competition but we’ll be running it slightly differently,’’ he said.
‘‘There’ll be two band stands and the competition will run there.
‘‘And we’ll have singer Rob Seddin performing on the same stage throughout the day while the competition isn’t running.’’
He said there would be the same jam-packed children’s entertainment, making TatFest a family-oriented event, plus some more.
‘‘We’ll be hoping to expand the kids’ entertainment,’’ Mr Campbell said.
‘‘We really wanted this to be a family-friendly event.’’
Mr Campbell said more information would be provided closer to the event.
