Sunbury’s volunteers know how to throw a party, and they’re ready to do it all again.

The SunFest festival, now in it’s 43rd year, is tipped to be bigger and better than ever when it lights up the town on the weekend of March 16 and 17.

SunFest president Shona Davie said the traditional festival, run entirely by volunteers, attracts up to 30,000 people across the weekend.

She said the festival was a great event for people of all ages.

“We’ve got entertainment, Sunbury’s Got Talent, Battle of the School Choirs, live music and fireworks,” she said.

“We have our Kids Corner coming this year … they’re going to have games, a scavenger hunt.

“We had some fantastic donations from Sunbury businesses … putting in for the kids to give out toys and prizes for the scavenger hunt.

“We’re doing bubble mania this year, the kids just loved it [last year] playing with bubbles.”

The Grand Street Parade featuring Sunbury’s community groups, businesses and emergency services will return and Yindi the mascot will have its own dance party.
