Winter Warmer at Treetops Park
On Saturday 3rd August 2019, we held our first Winter Warmer at Treetops Park and it was a huge success! Approximately 400 community members were treated to wonderful Hip Hop, Jazz, and Ballet dance performances by children from Main Street Funk – a fantastic way to kick off the night! Our glowing blue, dome marquee featured falling make-believe snow, a singer/guitarist and pretend firepits, and the kids loved creating their own wintery lanterns with tea lights. Our food vendors were flat-out serving pizza, paella and donuts whilst Caffeinate Me worked hard to keep up with the hot drink orders.
Neighbourhood Watch and the Wollert CFA were on hand to give us some great safety tips (and allowed us to check out their cool truck and siren!) and Aurora Community Association also joined in on the fun. The ladies at Splash of Colour expertly painted endless rainbows, puppies, tigers and butterflies on delighted little faces and our fire twirler’s skills lit up the night sky.
Thank you to all who braved the chilly weather to swing by and mingle, we hope you enjoyed getting to know your neighbours! Keep an eye out for more opportunities to get involved in your community on our Facebook page @Auroravic.
