“It was absolutely heaving, the bands were amazing and the support was brilliant,” that was the organiser’s review of the first Our Generation Young People’s Day.
Held on Saturday at Hotham Park, the event aimed to give the local youth an event to be a part of, and proud of.
Organiser Kez Bridger said: “It was just amazing. It blew us away. In the morning it was a bit touch and go, but it got to 1pm and all of a sudden there were lots of people – we worked out there were about 2,000 through the park on the day.”
It had been two years in the planning for Kez and her team but it already seems worthwhile.
“People have been saying ‘please say you are running this again next year’. I want to build it but I don’t want it to get too big, out of hand, I want it to be personal and positive.”
