Youth event in Violet Town success

Supported by FReeZA, the free event featured local music acts Splinter X, Ynot and Mason Rae-Green as well as an impressive demonstration from local BMX stars.

Euroa artist Lauren Erikson from Everyday Lines created a beautiful mural and attendees also had the chance to join in the fun, creating artworks for another mural overseen by Kate Van Nooten.

The event was also a chance for young people to practice their event skills with two young Violet Town locals Zeke Coles and Abbie Fuller MCing throughout the day.

Strathbogie Shire Council Mayor Cr Chris Raeburn said it was fantastic seeing new facilities being put to good use.

“We are so pleased that our youth can enjoy the new Violet Town Skatepark,” Cr Raeburn said.

“Not only is it a great way for young people to get outdoors, the space also offers an opportunity for social connections.”

Cr Raeburn said the event was a fantastic way for Council to foster young local talent, giving local musicians and artists a space to be creative and sharpen their craft.

“It is fantastic our Shire is filled with so many talented and creative young people,” he said.

“We are honoured to be able to showcase their work in any way possible.”
