Wacky fun on the way for Port Fairy

PORT Fairy’s bizarre summer festival traditions are kicking off this week. 

The holidays will again feature backwards running, rubber ducks and music. 

Moyneyana Festival organiser Reg Harry said crowd numbers were in line with last year, though cool weather over the weekend dampened events at the village green. 

“It’s been excellent so far. The numbers are about where they were last year but the wind has caused havoc,” Mr Harry said. 

For kids, the week has delivered everything from clowns to reptile shows and free events are on at the Village Green every weekend in January. 

“The next few days are really full on. Hopefully the weather is good for New Year’s Eve,” Mr Harry said.

The New Year’s Eve parade begins at 8pm after the backwards race at 7.30pm.
