Shire President Sue Bilich said the combination of events offered a wide ranging number of activities that would appeal to all festival goers.

�We want to paint the town yellow,� Cr Bilich said.

Spokeswoman for festival sponsor Kalamunda Central, Narelle Sisley said she was delighted to be working with the shire, local shop owners and businesses to promote the Hills area.

�We are very excited to be involved with the festival and encourage everyone to come and enjoy the fantastic events on offer,� she said.

�Kalamunda Central is encouraging businesses to think yellow and the shire can be contacted for festival decoration kits to assist businesses to join in the fun.�

The Kalamunda Central shopping centre will also run activities in the centre for the month of October to celebrate the festival.

The shire is also asking people to get involved by getting creative with art, sculpture, flowers, signs, and decorations.

All ideas will be considered, Cr Bilich said.

�We are also asking people to make yellow woollen pom poms with instructions and kits available.

�The aim of the festival is to help more people discover the Hills as a place to visit and we hope to firmly establish the festival on Perth�s event calendar every year.�

The Shire of Kalamunda will be encouraging people interested in food and wine and bushwalking, the Spring Flower Show, The Strawberry Fayre, the Kalamunda Night Market, guided mountain bike rides and the Ultimate Asparagus Experience to get involved.

Competitions will also be run with the winning prize being a dream weekend in the Hills.

The Festival kicks off on October 3 and ends on November 1.

Planned activities will be run every weekend and anyone interested in joining in can contact the shire on 9257 9999 or email kala.shire@kalamunda.wa.gov.au
