93.9 BayFM Geelong
You could never be bored in Geelong in regards to the events on offer all the year around. We have another great weekend ahead of a wonderful mix of things to do and places to go: Kicking off the weekend, why not jump in the car and enjoy a country drive out to the Golden Plains area and to enjoy the Golden Plains Arts Trail. There will be 60 artists exhibiting at various venues as well as some exceptional food, wine and accommodation options. Situated between Geelong and Ballarat. You can find out all details on www.artstrail.com.au You had better consider heading back to Geelong if you enjoy a bit of good ol’ blues music and a touch of folk music, because Teesdale is the place to be for Twilight at Turtle Bend. Peter Rowan and his bluegrass band head the night with some highly talented musicians entertaining throughout the evening. Events kick off at 5.30 and the night will also be host to the magical lantern parade. www.turtlebendevents.blogspot.com You had better head back to Geelong early Sunday however with an empty stomach and ready for a gastronomic experience at the Lara Food and Wine Festival. Matt Preston will star at this year’s festival along with 80 exhibitors of the finest food and wine available locally and beyond. Entry is by gold coin donation, plenty of live music and free kids entertainment. www.larafoodandwinefestival.com.au Alternatively Deans Marsh is also a great alternative as they play host to the Deans Marsh Festival from 10am. Great live music all day, lots of local food, wine and produce as well as art and craft, market stalls and lots to keep the kids busy and entertained. deansmarsh.org.au/festival That’s the weekend ahead in our wonderful city and surrounding region. I am certainly looking forward to getting out and enjoying one or more of these events.
