Grape stomping, live entertainment and free kids’ activities will all be major highlights of this Sunday’s LiveLighter Harvey Harvest Festival, according to event organisers.

Held at Snells Park in Harvey, the annual festival will again boast a range of dynamic live acts – including the South West Irish Dance group – various stalls and roving entertainment.

Coordinator Lisa Bevans has earmarked the kids’ zone and the annual grape stomping championships to be popular among the more than 12,000 festival-goers expected to attend.

“The festival is about getting families and the community out and having fun,” Ms Bevans said.

“The festival is to showcase what Harvey is about.

“The grape stomp is always entertaining to watch each year.”

The Fifi Mondello Trio will headline this year’s long list of entertainment and perform two one hour sets on the main stage from 10.30am and 12.30pm.

The inaugural Harvey Arts and Discovery Safari will also be held in conjunction with the festival in an effort to show off the area’s artistic sites and artists.

A 25-seat bus will leave the festival each hour and embark on a 45-minute journey to art venues and different points of interest, including a stopover at an exhibition at Chalbury Park.

Ms Bevans encouraged people from throughout the South West to attend the festival to see what Harvey had to offer.

The event is scheduled to begin at 9am.
