You can’t beat the atmosphere of Main St in Mornington. It’s a strip of eclectic shops that offer absolutely everything you could desire. The already addictive atmosphere surged over summer with the street closed towards the end of Main St to encourage outdoor dining in a post-COVID world. With the street closure, as you wandered along the road or footpath, the buzz was euphoric – almost like the festival days we know and love when the street often gets closed. But this time over summer it was for an extended period of time for all to enjoy every day. The vibe was social and upbeat, and the atmosphere was oozing excitement. It was welcomed with open arms after a lengthy lockdown by all. With exclusive specialty stores, marvellous eateries and specialist services, you’re well and truly set for a day out in Main St.
Businesses have been thrilled to be busy once again with out-of-towners and locals. The great number of holidaymakers and day-trippers have all positively contributed to a great summer and a great first half of the year. To add to this success, we’ve heard there’s a Mornington rewards program set to launch soon. Mornington Peninsula Magazine encourages everyone to sign up so they can reap the rewards while also donating to The Bays Comprehensive Cancer Centre.
The Queen’s Birthday long weekend will be no different with the Mornington Winter Music Festival in full swing. In fact, it will be better as the tunes of talented artists waft down the street and hit the refreshing sea breeze. Visit www.morningtonmusicfestival.com.au for the full downloadable venue and street programs. Plus watch this space for the exciting announcement of the new Mornington Chamber of Commerce committee.
