A silent disco, M&M's busking competition, balloon twisting, giant games, a caricaturist and a circus performer doing hula-hooping acts and interactive sessions will all be part of the fun planned to enliven Young when the Young Street Party takes place on Saturday.

Activities will kick off from 9.30am and run through to 1.30pm all made possible by a grant awarded to Hilltops Council from the NSW Government's 'The Festival of Place - Summer Fund Program.'

Mayor Brian Ingram said, "activities for the Young Street Party have been specifically designed to enhance and support the shopper experience that already exists in Young, and I encouraged residents and visitors to get involved on the day."

"It really is an excellent chance to connect with the local community, have some fun and at the same time boost the local economy," he concluded.

To add to the 'Party' vibe on the day, Council encourages Boorowa Street businesses to bring their shops out onto the footpath and decorate their shop fronts to lift local spirits.

The Summer Fund Program is an initiative supported by the NSW Government to help Councils run small to medium activities.
