Wonthaggi ball a roaring success
THERE are big things coming to Wonthaggi in 2016.
The Wonthaggi Business Association (WBA) farewelled 2015 with a successful ’20s themed Christmas ball.
“We had the vintage photo booth, which everybody loved, and the roulette table was hugely popular,” WBA business liaison officer Leah Montebello said.
“We are extremely grateful to Rob Lee, who was a major sponsor of the event and made it possible.”
All funds raised on the night will go towards next year’s big events.
The association will hold a laneway festival in March.
“The concept of the laneway festival is to turn Wonthaggi inside out and traders will work from the back of their shops,” Ms Montebello said.
“We will be implementing a plan for waste management and to fix the laneway before the festival.”
The festival will be held in the Jongbloed laneway, which will become a nice space for people to wander through and explore Wonthaggi’s businesses.
WBA plans to have more laneways brightened up with murals next year as well.
“We are moving forward and there are more big plans to come that I can’t yet reveal,” Ms Montebello said.
The Make It Bake It sale will continue to run in 2016, as it has become a huge success in Wonthaggi.
“It has really taken off. We had five new traders at the last sale and two more will be joining us in 2016,” Ms Montebello said.
