Coal Creek geeked out

SATURDAY saw the second annual Geekfest held at Coal Creek in Korumburra, with avid cosplay and anime fans descending on the heritage village for a day of fun on Saturday.

Coal Creek supervisor Rowena Ashley said the day was a major success.

“Geekfest provides a space for people of Gippsland and far afield to come together and enjoy a day of costumes and activities,” she said.

“This festival is one of 10 of its kind in Australia and people come from all over to participate.”

Guests came in full costume with many donned in medieval, cosplay or steampunk attire.

The village hosted a number of stalls showcasing handmade costumes and designs from across the country.

“There is an active community of people who enjoy Geekfest attractions in the area. Often people have to travel to Melbourne to enjoy events like this, so it is great we can offer it here,” Ms Ashley said.

“There were a great diverse range of costumes and many presentations to keep the crowds entertained.”

The festival concluded with a popular ball later on Saturday evening.
