COUNCIL Director of Community and Recreation Services, Melanie Smith said it’s an opportunity for the Central Coast Community and visitors to visit the town centre of Wyong and explore all it has to offer.


“Festivities will kick off at 4pm and run until 9pm filling Wyong with live music, entertainment, food and market stalls, kids and teenage zones, circus performances, art installations plus more,” Ms Smith said.


“It’s an incredible chance to discover Wyong’s hidden gems and immerse the whole family in the buzz of this unique outdoor festival.


“The Love Lanes mural will be making a comeback, with coasties being encouraged to take a snap and share the love”.


Last year’s event attracted approximately 8,000 festival goers and injected over $1 million into the local economy.


Council Administrator, Rik Hart said the festival transforms Wyong’s heritage laneways and town park into an exciting hub of art, culture and culinary experiences.


“Love Lanes has become a highlight on the Coast’s event schedule where community organisations and local businesses share their talents, expertise and celebrate the wonderful area we live in,” Mr Hart said.
