The Eden Whale Festival’s ‘big one’ is exactly that… it starts with the high energy Allied Natural Wood Exports Street Parade in the heart of town and finishes with the sky lighting up to the region’s best fireworks displays.
Synchronised truck manoeuvres, 50 hot rods and roving shows will kick off the Eden Whale Festival Street parade on Saturday, October 30. Proudly at the helm will be Con Zurcas of Eden Motor Group, a proud sponsor of the festival. “I have a passion for motor vehicles and am very pleased to support the festival in this way,” he said.
The parade is a high energy show that leads everyone to Snug Cove for a full day of entertainment, live music until midnight and the Port Authority NSW fireworks show on dusk. The morning’s entertainment starts off at 9:30 with roving entertainment and an industrial strength display by local log truck drivers.
The best vantage points along the parade route lie between the main street flagpole (dressed in its best) and the Eden Killer Whale Museum, where the cacophony turns left to Snug Cove and more celebrations. Turn right if you are walking and take the beautifully landscaped Warrens’ Walk to the cove. Buses will give you a life back up! Stay on at Snug Cove for live shows and hands on family fun with street theatre, film, music, seafood and local produce.
Parking: Find a spot away from the CBD as road closures restrict space.
Buses: Continuously run between Snug Cove and Imlay Street.
