A superb Father’s Day occasion for all the family in Williamstown
The beautiful Melbourne seaside suburb of Williamstown is already a hugely popular place for visitors from across the city and beyond. If you haven’t spent time there, it’s just so easy to relax and enjoy the superb cafe culture and boutique stores, and admire the historic buildings and terrific views of the city skyline.
On Father’s Day, 6th September 2015, Fruitbowl Productions, as event management specialists based in Melbourne, were delighted to offer key services to the first-ever Williamstown Health & Wellbeing Festival. Entry was free to the venue, the Seaworks Maritime Precinct, wonderfully positioned right on the edge of the bay. This superb idea was an initiative of the vibrant local Chamber of Commerce, and was presented in association with BMW Melbourne. Fruitbowl coordinated the more than 30 varied food and other stalls, as well as some amazing pop-up restaurants. They offered a chance for so many local businesses to showcase their goods and services as part of an unforgettable day of free entertainment and maximum participation.
Of course, among the fun, which included terrific rides and so many other activities, including face painting and a photo booth, for the kids, there was a serious point to be made about both health and wellbeing. Matching the Father’s Day theme, visitors could discover more about men’s health products and services. There were plenty of live stage cooking demos from experts such as food, lifestyle and wellness coach, Andi Lew, and Jodie Blight, author of ‘Hello Table’. Demonstrations from the Alyce Alexandra Cooking School, OTAO Kitchen and the Vietnamese Cooking School were thoroughly enjoyed, as were the sampling opportunities!
Fitness was also well catered for, with demonstrations of yoga, Pilates, tai chi, seated massage, as well as meditation workshops. Posture could be checked and lots of free yet so valuable lifestyle advice was also offered. Visitors thoroughly embraced the many other opportunities to find out more about natural cosmetics and enjoy raw food presentations.
