CLARENCE Street’s niche restaurant precinct will take centre stage on Friday.
Port Macquarie-Hastings Council has partnered with CBD restaurants and businesses to showcase local food and entertainment at the Clarence Street Food Festival.
Located in Clarence Street, between Short Street and the Hastings River, the event also represents an opportunity for visitors and locals to meet council’s Place Making team and help determine a vision for the future of the precinct.
In additional to a smorgasboard of street food, there will be plenty of activities to keep visitors entertained, including live music, a projected light show, giant games (chess, checkers and Jenga) and street art demonstrations, which will be auctioned for charity on the night.
To embrace Friday the 13th, festival goers are encouraged to come in fancy dress and the street will be suitably decorated with spooky artwork from local school students.
Local business owners Todd and Lisa Richardson from Lv’s on Clarence said they were excited about the festival and promoting “an area many people bypass in their usual visits to the CBD”.
“There are a range of exciting restaurants and menus for people of all ages to enjoy close to the riverfront, and we are looking forward to revealing Port Macquarie’s best kept secret,” he said.
According to council’s community and economic growth director Tricia Bulic the festival is both an opportunity to showcase the precinct and for the community to share their vision of a transformative future.
The festivities will run from 4.30pm to 8.30pm.
Entry is free and a variety of food and refreshments will be on offer for a fee.
