Winter Weekends next month

WITH the weeks flying by, now is the time to lock June 6-11 in your diary – the annual Port Fairy Winter Weekends program has been released.

By Staff Writer

The town’s annual ‘winter weekends’ program is always a huge attraction for visitors and locals alike.

The action-packed program will celebrate food, art, community and the environment with a host of fun and informative activities and events on offer.

From Thursday, June 6 youngsters can head to the Paper Store in Port Fairy to collect a colour-in sheet and enter the competition (from under six years through to 11-13 years).

On Friday, June 7 a special Port Fairy Fairy Hunt will run all day from the visitor information centre.

Winter is a special time when the fairies and little folk come out to play so why not head to the centre and begin your search?

Collect your clues and look high and low – then return your completed form to the centre for the chance to win a prize.

The Port Fairy parkrun can be enjoyed from 8am on Saturday, June 8 and then head to Railway Place for the chance to pick up some great bargains (and loads of goodies) at the community market.

Lighthouse Tours can be enjoyed for a small fee at Griffiths Island on Sunday, June 9.

Is your tiny pooch getting race-fit for the all-important Dachshund Dash?

This big event for tiny legs always attracts a huge crowd to Gardens Oval.

The 16th annual Dachshund Dash will take place on Sunday, June 9 from 2pm.

As numbers are limited, entries will close on June 1 (simply head to the Port Fairy Winter Weekends website to register).

Three categories will be contested – under two years, over two years and veterans (eight plus years).

With so much to see and do during the Winter Weekends program, make sure you set the June long weekend aside for some wonderful entertainment with family and friends.
