Marking Moomba memories

18 Feb 2014

Marking Moomba memories Image

Having found a home in Southbank in recent years, Melbourne’s iconic Moomba festival will turn 60 this year and the City of Melbourne (CoM) has plans for a unique celebration.

The council wants to hear from anyone who has experienced the festival over the past 60 years, offering the chance to take part in the festival’s centerpiece, the parade.

CoM will collect all entries on social media site Tumblr on a page called People of Moomba. The best 30 entries will be asked to be part of People of Moomba floats.

Lord Mayor Robert Doyle said the city wanted to pay homage to the people who have enjoyed the past six decades of Labour Day weekend fun.

“Moomba is Melbourne, and we are very proud that our iconic festival is celebrating its 60th anniversary. The City of Melbourne believes there’s no better way to celebrate than by honouring the people who have enjoyed and participated in Moomba for six decades,” Cr Doyle said.

If you have a special memory of the parade, the birdman rally or the water skiing you can enter the competition at www.peopleofmoomba.tumblr.com or write to the council.
