The Altona Bayside Festival which has been run for 33 years is very important to Altona, Hobsons Bay City and Melbourne's western suburbs as an annual community activity and for promoting arts and culture, sports and recreation. It has become an icon of the area.
Operation Recreation Inc. which has been organizing the Festival has some problems and will no longer run a Festival in 2011.
We, the undersigned, call on the Hobsons Bay City Council to undertake measures to ensure the continued running of the Altona Bayside Festival, including the takeover of the organization of the Festival, if required.
The Save the Altona Bayside Festival petition to Hobsons Bay City Council was written by Anthony Ang and is in the category Culture at GoPetition.
