2014 Darra Street Party (Friday 17 Oct)

Darra Street Party

Friday 17th October, 2014: 5pm until 9.30pm

(road closed between Darra Railway Station and the Darra Village shops)
Depending on good weather, the 11th Darra Street Party looks like it will be their best with an anticipated attendance of 4,000.  With the cancellation this year of the Rocks River Festival, the Darra festival is the place to go.  The Party has been generously sponsored by Westlink Green – the company responsible for the new technology precinct in the old Darra Cement site.
Many exhibitors will be onsite to promote their business as will 4 of our politicians.
The committee of the Darra community Group once again have provided children gold coin rides and stage entertainment provided with a mixture of very talented local school children and professional entertainers.  A family of four can come and be fed, amused and entertained for as low as $20.  There are no entry fees.
Jamboree Residents Association has thrown their weight behind this year’s event and is responsible for the running of the associated Monster Street Party Raffle.  22 Darra and Sumner Industrial Park businesses have provided as many prizes with the total prize pool of $5,000.  Tickets are $2 each and at short odds of collecting a prize. 
In the main control marquee, JRA will have on display our recently won Spotless Suburb Award and BCC Cleanest City in Australia billboards which feature our local Meyer family’s involvement.
This is also where you can purchase your raffle tickets.  If you can’t attend on the night, you can purchase raffle tickets at Walter Wood’s newsagency on Sumner Road, River Hills or Mr Minute at Mt Ommaney Shopping Centre.

With the new alliance between JRA, Darra Community Group and the local businesses, you can be assured that the congestion along Sumner Road will be once again high on the State Election campaign.
