Henley on Lake Wallace foreshore fun

Edenhope is again gearing up for one of the biggest events on its calendar.

Henley on Lake Wallace will return for its 99th year on Saturday, bringing a unique festival-like charm to the West Wimmera town, offering everything from a street parade to a yabby eating contest.

The event, which has transformed from a day of water activities to an all-round family fun day, will start at 2pm with a procession.

Committee president Hugh Caldow said the rest of the program at Henley Park would feature similar entertainment and activities to previous years.

He said this included a rolling-pin throwing competition, live music, side shows, ‘digs’ and plenty of food.

New to the list this year will be open learning sessions with Wimmera Women’s Circus and performances from children’s entertainers The Kazoos.

Mr Caldow said this was part of an overall committee direction to cater the event more towards its youngest attendees.

“It’s also to encourage people who have moved away or have kids to come back and catch up,” he said.

Mr Caldow said the event usually gathered anywhere between 400 and 1000 people to the shores of Edenhope’s Lake Wallace.

He said the day would end about 9.30pm with fireworks.
