PREPERATIONS are well in hand for the largest one-day free family festival in regional NSW this Sunday at Corrimal.

The Spring into Corrimal festival attracts crowds in excess of 60,000. Corrimal’s streets will be closed to traffic on Sunday September 8 from 9am to 4pm when the shopping strip turns into a centre of bustling fun.

Organised by the Corrimal Chamber of Commerce, the festival operates on a not-for-profit basis with the money raised going back into community projects.

Spring into Corrimal includes over 270 market stalls, entertainment, live music and a grand parade within the central hub of Corrimal including surrounding streets and parks. There is a designated area featuring storytelling and entertainment especially for small children and young people. There will be two entertainment stages featuring a variety of bands and performances from local community organisations.

There is plenty of fun with amusement rides, face painting and show bags.

Local restaurants and cafes will set up roadside with a taste-tempting array of treats. Food stalls and vans also offer tastes from around the world at the International Food Arena.
