The Phillip Island 150th Celebrations Street Parade is happening on Saturday, 3 November 2018.

The Phillip Island 150th Planning Committee is looking for floats and displays from schools, musicians, street performers, community groups, sporting clubs and individuals that will bring colour and life to the event.

The Parade will start at 11.00am at the Cowes Cultural Centre and make its way down Thompson Avenue to finish on the Esplanade, where the Bendigo Community Bank Day will take place on the Cowes Foreshore, starting at 12.00pm.

Street processions have played a significant role in Phillip Island’s long and proud history.

The 150th Parade will be a great opportunity to relive this fantastic tradition and bring the community together to help celebrate this important occasion.

To help plan the management of the Parade, a meeting is planned for Thursday, 20 September at the Cowes Cultural Centre (Meeting Room 1) from 6.00pm for all interested groups and individuals.

For more information, or to register your interest, please contact Bass Coast Shire Council’s Events Team on 1300 BCOAST (226 278) or (03) 5671 2211.
