Go for 2&5 Araluen’s Fremantle Chilli Festival – 8th & 9th March 2014
The Go for 2 & 5 Araluen’s Fremantle Chilli Festival will be happening again 8 & 9 March 2014
The 2013 Chilli Festival attracted record crowds with around 22,500 visitors enjoying near-perfect conditions. The festival featured the largest contingent of stallholders 82 in total with 25 new stallholders welcomed to the festival. Every year there are new and exciting ranges of products for visitors to enjoy from beverages to amazing tasty foods.
This year we introduced a new concept “Kids in the Kitchen”. This involved children of all ages making a fruit skewer from a large range of fruit and vegetables supplied by Coles. Over 600 children passed through the Go for 2 & 5 marquee under the guidance of our hard working team. They spend a great deal of their weekend cutting fruit and helping children create a healthy and colourful fruit concoctions. This proved a great way for the kids to enjoy a variety of fruit. ‘Sow-A-Veg’ by Beyond Gardeners were also kept very busy with so many children planting a seed to take home and watch it grow.
This year we saw the introduction of an on-site broadcast by Mix 94.5 which, contributed to the increased number of visitors to the festival. The annual AMIC/MLA ‘Butchers Picnic’ including the State judging of the best meat pie and beefburger together with representation from ABL Perth Heat Baseball Team all added to the increased numbers and great atmosphere.
The introduction of a bigger stage to accommodate a variety of entertainment from Chef Dale to the dancers from Dance Workshop and the 5 piece group Tabas.co worked well. While all this was happening on stage the Silent-partner stilt walkers and Marco Quiroz Mariachi duo were roving around entertaining the crowds of people enjoying the festival.
Every year visitors enjoy a carnival atmosphere and great music.
