Foodies Get Their Fill

Park Feast has once again been hailed a “success” by Hills Shire residents after more than 20,000 people descended upon Bella Vista Farm for the annual Foodie Festival.

Mayor of The Hills Shire, Dr Michelle Byrne said The Hills is quickly becoming known as a destination thanks to events like Park Feast.

“The Park Feast team have continued to exceed expectation time-after-time with their unique twist on a food truck festival,” Mayor Byrne said.

“The atmosphere at the historic property was just electric. Attendees were all smiles as they tried different tastes, took part in the fun activities and soaked up the family-friendly atmosphere, while enjoying the historic homestead views.

“I am proud to support Park Feast as a Summer Series event.

“Summer Series promotes small business, provides a place for families and friends to come together and celebrate and continues The Hills’ reputation as a great place to live, work and play.”

Park Feast organiser, Elena Saadie said she was thrilled Park Feast has continued to draw in huge crowds.

“There is a big appetite for this type of event in The Hills,” Mrs Saadie said.

“We had a diverse group of people – from teenagers to families – really enjoying a day filled with delicious food, activities and live entertainment.

“We’ve had great feedback and I am so happy that Park Feast has continued to be a favourite in locals’ calendars,” Mrs Saadie added.

Summer Series, a Hills Shire Council initiative, promotes an action-packed program of events to keep residents entertained and close to home, attract more visitors to the region and boost the local economy.

Next on the schedule is Hills Illuminate at Rouse Hill Town Centre.

Lighting up on December 2, the inflatable installation will have attendees in the festive spirit as they enjoy an interactive light show.
