Busselton Jetty Fiesta
The Shire of Busselton, in association with Busselton Jetty Environment and Conservation Association (BJECA), is hosting a gala event to celebrate the official re-opening of the restored Busselton Jetty.
The event, which has been named the Busselton Jetty Fiesta, will take place on Saturday 5 February 2011 from 1.00pm - 9.00pm on the Busselton Foreshore.
It will coincide with another major Busselton based event - namely the Busselton Jetty Swim. Celebrations will be spread over the entire first weekend in February, commencing with the Busselton Jets Fun Run scheduled to start at Signal Park early on Saturday 5 February 2011.
The Busselton Jetty Fiesta will follow on Saturday afternoon and will include lots of fun activities for the kids, entertainment for the whole family and culminate in a performance from Kate Ceberano & her band and a fantastic fireworks display.
On the morning of Sunday the 6 February 2011 the weekend will conclude with over 1,000 people participating in the Busselton Jetty Swim. As the participants brave the 3.6km swim around the Busselton Jetty, come and join in the entertainment and family fun which will again culminate in a performance from a headline act at around midday.
