Celebrating Neighbour Day in Victoria Harbour

25 March 2019

To celebrate Neighbour Day, Victoria Harbour residents are invited to an old-school block party in Buluk Park on Sunday 31 March from 11am – 3pm. This is a free event, held in conjunction with City of Melbourne.

From Bollywood dancing to mega boardgames, there will be a range of activities to keep you entertained in our neighbourhood. Come along to our annual celebration of community, while getting to know your neighbours.

Here’s what we’ve got planned for the day:

Move:
We’ll be kicking off the event with some family-friendly yoga and Tai Chi. You’ll get bendy and clear your mind while experiencing some of the great wellness programs Victoria Harbour has to offer.

There will be Bollywood dancing performances by national level dancers from India, and a silent disco co-ordinated by Guru Dudu. You will wear headphones and dance to the beat, while getting your heart rate up and having some fun!

Eat:
We know Victoria Harbour residents love their coffee, so we’re going to supply the sacred brew through an on-site coffee cart run by social enterprise Co-Ground.

Are you a sweet tooth? Kep Whitley will be open, selling her delicious hot chocolates, ice creams and cocoa treats. The 2019 Easter range will be available, so you can get a head-start on your Easter egg shopping while enjoying the event.

There is no way we are going to let you go hungry, so there will also be a free sausage sizzle in the park. Bring your picnic gear and a gold coin donation for the Docklands Community Garden who will be hosting the barbeque.

 

Create and play:
To celebrate our community’s creativity, the Docklands Community Garden will be running potting demonstrations, where kids will learn how to plant seedlings.

We’ll also have oversized board games that you can play with on the lawn.

Ride down to Buluk Park to get your bike serviced by Good Cycles or visit the Wooden Boat Centre to pick up some new boat making skills.

For those interested in fair food, we will have the Social Food Project where you will learn how to purchase, eat and live more sustainably, while the Country Women’s Association will be running workshops on how to make homemade jam.
