Cr David Asker said: “Following a difficult 2020, which saw lockdowns and cancelled events, residents well and truly deserve the opportunity to get out and about and celebrate Frankston. Our No.1 priority is providing a safe, healthy and fun event for locals, visitors, stallholders and performers. We’re committed to increased cleaning at all sites. There will also be QR code entry for all people and monitoring of numbers at each site to ensure the events are delivered in line with COVID-safe practices. It’s essential that all patrons safely interact with local businesses, food and market stalls and other festival-goers, and we’ve worked tirelessly to ensure this occurs.”
