|30,000 visited the Mussel Festival|
Volunteers at the Drysdale & Clifton Springs Community Association (DCSCA) tent promoted the two new features of the Festival of Glass - the glass art Treasure Hunt, which starts on February 1st and finishes at the Festival Expo on Sunday 21 February; and the glass art Masterclass at Leura Park on Friday February 19.
DCSCA is the 'parent' of the Festival of Glass and it was part of a display by organisations connected with the local foreshore.
The display - coordinated by Bellarine Bayside - was at the entrance to the Portarlington pier and formed an adjunct to the Mussel Festival proper, which organisers said attracted 30,000 visitors.
A steady stream of people visited the DCSCA tent on their way to the Mussel Festival. There was a lot of interest in the Masterclass and Treasure Hunt, although as far as the children were concerned, the nearby stuffed seal and wallaby had the edge!
