While the Waratah-Wynyard Council’s popular Tulip Festival won’t go ahead this year, a month-long celebration Spring Loaded is set to begin on Friday, September 25, 2020.
The Spring Loaded program is jam packed with events run by Council as well as community events occurring during the September 25 to Sunday, October 18 period.
“There’s something for everyone to enjoy during Spring Loaded,” Waratah-Wynyard Mayor Robby Walsh said.
“Whether it’s live entertainment, a drive-in movie, the Kids Fun Day, the popular Gopher Race, searching for Tas Rocks or playing the Street Piano in Gutteridge Gardens.”
The Table Cape Tulip Farm will be open from September 26 to the end of October and will be hosting Tunes in the Tulips on October 3. A special sunrise champagne breakfast by Dane Poke of Bruce’s Café will be held at the beautiful Table House Farm and there are many free events, including exhibitions at the wonders of Wynyard and ArtsCape as well as the Kids Fun Day, the drive-in movies at Frederick St Reserve and the light show that will feature above the Bank of Us building every night through the program.
“Our municipality has so many great reasons to visit, let alone the special events as part of the Spring Loaded program,” Mayor Walsh said. “We can’t wait to welcome you to the municipality.”
To adhere to social distancing and guidelines around the numbers of people gathering in spaces, all the events have capped numbers.
“To avoid disappointment, we encourage guests to reserve their spot via the www.trybooking.com  website, or by calling the numbers listed next to the events in the program,” Waratah-Wynyard Council’s Community & Events Officer Chantelle French said.
