The 2017 Lane Cove Night Out took place on Friday 27 October from 6:00pm - 8:00pm.
30 local businesses put on once-a-year specials in-store and in Lane Cove Plaza to help encourage people to shop locally.
The Plaza was alive with the sounds of Eclypse who had an audience of all ages dancing along the front of stage and up the purple carpet that lined the centre of the Plaza. Hundreds of Love Where You Shop Lane Cove bags and badges were distributed to shoppers who presented their receipts at the Shop to Win wheel.
Council is currently checking in with businesses to see how we can build on the event for 2018.
Lane Cove locals lapped up the start of Spring with more
than 1,500 people attending the fourth Coffee Carnevale event in Lane Cove
Plaza on Saturday 2 September.
With a special sustainability focus this year, event goers
explored alternative sustainable practices brushing up their own artworks using
coffee, making their own homemade coffee scrub and supporting the Lane Cove
Sustainability Action Group by purchasing their very own reusable coffee cups.
The young and young at heart also had the chance to kick up
their heels as the Venetian-inspired performers brought energy and buzz to the
Plaza green. Giant jenga, face painting and additional seating also ensured the
whole family could enjoy the day.
Coffee-lovers were able to collect their free updated Lane
Cove Coffee Guide which features over 30 local coffee shops throughout the
area. New to the 2017-18 edition of the guide is a listing of the shops
involved in the Responsible Cafés program. With the Coffee Guide and a reusable
cup in hand, customers now know where to receive a discount on their caffeine
The day finished with a Latte Art Smackdown for local baristas which was
hosted by the Australian Specialty Coffee Association. The overall winner for
the best latte-art for 2017 was Ashton Tushengda from Fourth Fish Café &
Restaurant and the runner up Malvin Lie representing both Fibonacci Coffee Lane
Cove and Birdwood Café.
