Mr FEENEY (Batman) (13:42): On 15 March the city of Darebin and hosted the Darebin Community and Kite Festival. This year I again had the pleasure of attending this festival which has been a hallmark of the city of Darebin's commitment to community and art for over a decade. In recent years, the festival has attracted a large following from across Darebin and the greater Melbourne area. The festival has recently become a larger part of the True North Reservoir Arts Festival, which aims to showcase local artists and businesses. Held at Edwardes Lake Park in Reservoir. The festival offers families the opportunity to come together and engage as a community. Free entertainment was featured all day with kite flying, kite-making workshops, kids activities, local bands, a mini market, food stalls and a mobile art space. Local council staff and representatives from Darebin community groups were also in attendance, available to festival-goers, to talk about the services they provide and the services locals need and the very important work they do.

I congratulate the city of Darebin for organising, again, a wonderful event and wish them all the very best as they continue to contribute to the character of the Darebin municipality located within my electorate of Batman.
