Logan Village Music and Heritage festival a hit with crowds

Thousands of people flocked to the Village Greens on Sunday, September 10 for this year’s Logan Village Music and Heritage Festival.

Local bands and school children were ready to perform on the various stages and community groups were out in-force to show off their unique talents.

Coordinator Wendy Duke said it was a real community event thanks to so many community groups and the extended amount of people who rolled out their picnic rugs.

“We aimed to give everyone an inexpensive day out and I think we achieved that,” she said.

“We had people wandering around the greens all day from right when we officially opened at 9am.”

Ms Duke said the three music stages allowed various musicians to play to different crowds.

“The children from Logan Village State School were the first performers on stage and they sang the national anthem in both English and Yugambeh.

“We then had students from Canterbury College perform for our crowds.”

Other performers for the day included Neem, Chester, Ruby Jo, the Scott Douglas Band and Krazy Horse.

Ms Duke said there was lots of positive feedback about the music and markets and the day itself.

“We ran in-conjunction with the Tailpipe Awareness vehicle show as well this year which just brought another touch of history to the Village Greens,” she said.

“It all just worked so well and the committee is just so pleased with the day.

“We had so many happy people down in our village.”

The spinners and weavers, Logan Village Museum, the marine modelers and and the Logan Village Rockers were just some of the groups who were educating the community about historic arts and events.
