Where can I park?
Parking is always difficult, and due to the extended road closure area this time it’s a good idea to park on the Kalmia side of Ellerslie and walk through the tunnel on Sultan Street or via the overbridge at the top of Ellerslie Main Street. This will bring you straight out into our event.
There is always the train! Free for kids under 15 on the weekend using a registered hop card!

Toilets are both in the hall (including baby change table) or at the end of Arthur Street.
