May Day Festival & March / Sunday 5th May 2013 / Fremantle Esplanade / 12noon – 4.30pm
The annual MAY DAY festival traditionally plays a big part to help recognise the achievements of working people, so come and celebrate the victory in achieving the 8 hour work day in Australia in true Fremantle style.
Perth’s MAY DAY is supported by UNIONSWA with free live entertainment, performances, food, rides & family activities.
MARCH @ 12noon - The March begins on Marine Parade, and then travels throughout the streets of Fremantle (Norfolk Street, South Terrace & High Street). Leading the way will be Beleza Samba Group making as much noise as possible.
FESTIVAL @ 1.00pm - When the marchers complete the route and return to the Esplanade, our guest speaker will take the stage to highlight current campaigns (speakers TBC); followed by a series of live entertainment, DJs and plenty of family festival fun.
Live entertainment with:
*Dilip N the Davs - www.thedavs.com.au
Fresh from recording their second album, Dilip N the Davs are Fremantle’s busiest and most dynamic original party band. Their up-tempo, high – octane music and good vibes will be sure to keep the May Day Festival punters toe tapping and hip swinging throughout the afternoon as their funky reggae tinged rock grooves always gets the audience moving! Be there when this large 6 piece band erupt into an inferno of rhythm!
The ‘Pimps of Sound’ have had a dream first year which saw them supporting international acts, headlining local events, playing major local festivals and of course, delivering high energy, DnB tunes to packed dance floors. Don’t miss their vibrant live show, which includes their trademark liquid style fusing Latin, jazz, afro beat, jungle and hip hop.
*DJ
Before, between and after each band, there will be a DJ playing some rocking tunes to help keep you entertained right throughout your May Day festival.
For the children:
*Free show rides
Children at May Day will be treated to free show rides, bouncy castle action, and dad (& mum) can even get involved by testing their ‘strong man’ skills. For the bigger children we will have bumper cars and an obstacle course, and for the really little ones there will be a toddler’s tent. Enjoy all free rides between 1.00pm & 4.00pm.
*Roaming entertainment
Keep an eye out for the talented ‘Beatknickers’ as they perform their Instant Art, Beat Poetry to Bongos & Mini Guitar, and show off their fine circus skills whilst careening through the crowd this May Day.
*Petting Zoo
The hugely popular and much loved Old MacDonald’s Travelling Farm will return again in 2013.
*Face Painters
There will be free face paints for the children this May Day, try to get in early, as these talented teenagers tend to draw a lot of attention. Free face paints from 1.00pm – 3.30pm.
