The City of Marion is running free shuttle buses to its community music festival Concert at the Cove today (Saturday, February 4) at Heron Way Reserve, Hallett Cove.
Council is partnering with music event organiser Fork on the Road to deliver an afternoon and evening of live music, roving performers, and delicious food from 3 pm to 8 pm.
Heron Way Reserve will be closed to through traffic from 6 am to 10 pm on February 4 from the roundabout of Dutchman Drive and Heron Way to the corner of Heron Way and Grand Central Avenue.
Parking is limited in and around the reserve. There are buses that go right up to Heron Way Reserve, and the reserve itself is just a 700m walk from the Hallett Cove Beach Railway Station (via Dutchman Drive) where there are public parking spaces.
Shuttle bus routes
Free shuttle buses will be running from 2.30 pm from The Cove Road near bus stop 55H (opposite Pavana Reserve), through to Cherub Street near bus stop 57H (train station) down to Heron Way Reserve.
The community bus will then loop back from Heron Way Reserve offering free return trips to Cherub Street (train station) and The Cove Road (Pavana Reserve) before repeating the journey for the duration of the event.
Please note if you are travelling with children under seven years of age, look out for the JC-branded minibus which has the facilities to transport young children.
Free community event
Concert at the Cove is a free event. The line-up of entertainment includes Indigenous artists Tilly Tjala Thomas and Rob Edwards as well as Wol Zala, Ras Minano & the Hope of Africa Band.
The event also features entertainment for children with face painting and roving performers.
Food van options include Orexi (Greek souvlaki), Enfes Gozleme (Turkish), Beyond India, Bonnie's Vegan and Fat Fork. For something sweeter, there will be Boost, Wafflestix, Sky Doodles offering fairy floss, and What’s the Scoop? Serving ice cream.
