The Mountain Festival celebrates Mt Wellington and its special places, and this year we focus on celebrating its Water. On the weekend of 9 and 10 October events will be held on the mountain and the waterways that flow from it. On Saturday we start at Brookfield Winery, Margate with a puppet show and walks, talks and displays about the flora, fauna and history of the area. Meanwhile at Tolosa Park, Glenorchy, from 10 to 3, there are family activities and interpretive walks. At the Springs on Mt Wellington there will be interpretive walks and children's activities in the afternoon. On Sunday the Sandy Bay Rivulet is the focus of activity, starting at Parliament St Reserve, Dynnyrne with breakfast and dancing, and moving up to the Waterworks from midday for the Teddy Bears Picnic, the Mountain Orchestra, and interpretive walks and family activities. In the evening the Fern Tree community centre will host the Mountain Questivale, a cabaret, quiz and feast.
