The City of Bayswater and the City’s Youth Advisory Council will host the event that will feature performances from Perth band Lights of Berlin and the 2015 Sound Overload Battle of the Bands runners-up Figurehead.

Mayor Barry McKenna said the Youth Advisory Council had done a “magnificent” job arranging the event.

“This group excels at planning activities for our younger residents and they have done an outstanding job,” he said.

Boomshanka skate, scooter and BMX demonstrations, a pool party, a heat of the Sound Overlord competition, market stalls and outdoor games will also feature.

East Victoria Park resident Mr Wong said he would sell helium-standard animal balloons, including pandas, dogs, dinosaurs, cows and chickens on the day.

“Not only the kids will love it but the families too,” he said.

The festival will be held at Bayswater Waves on Saturday from 12pm to 5pm and entry is $2. For more information go to www.facebook.com/yac.bayswater.
