Federal park – photo Social Habitat

The Federal Park Party, held in the village of Federal in Byron Shire’s hinterland, will take place on Saturday October 20 from 12 noon.
Organisers say it will be a ‘celebration of the vibrant community life in the hills above Byron and Mullumbimby.’
‘This gathering has been going for 16 years with many people coming to experience the event from far and wide.

After last year’s wash out, this year will be even more special.’
Highlights include a silent disco, the busking comp, games and fabulous food.

This year the popular dog show also returns at around 4pm.
Great live music and DJs by locals and guests will be featured all day and will continue as the sun goes down.

They continue, ‘We’ll also be celebrating the installation of a defibrillator in the village, other improvements in the Park, launching the re-power Federal campaign with COREM and celebrating the installation of solar panels on Federal Hall
Everyone is welcome to come along, enjoy the food, meet friends and have a dance to the beats.’
This is a free community event and a highlight on the Byron Hinterland calendar.
