A LIFESTYLE and pet expo will kick off the City of Wanneroo’s 2016-17 events program.

Held in Madeley on October 23, the Living and Leisure Expo featuring Dogs’ Breakfast is the first free event in the series.

“This home, lifestyle and pet extravaganza is not to be missed,” Mayor Tracey Roberts said.

“Bring along your four-legged pooches for free vet checks, pet registrations and free microchipping to the first 100 people along.”

The event will feature local products and services, children’s entertainment, workshops, demonstrations, giveaways and an appearance by former My Kitchen Rules contestants Anna and Jordan.

Entertainment will continue the following month, with the City of Wanneroo Presents concert at Wanneroo Showground on November 5.

Acts have not been confirmed, but Mrs Roberts promised a “fantastic” line-up of live music.

In January and February, the Live in the Amphitheatre series will screen movies under the stars and on March 4, people can step back in time at Yanchep National Park with Retro Rewind.

The final event in the program is the Global Beats and Eats festival scheduled for March 18 in Girrawheen.

“Our annual events program brings our community together to celebrate,” Mrs Roberts said.

“Providing access to free experiences residents might not otherwise be able to enjoy is just one of the amazing things about our events season.”
