THE cold weather won’t stop Will Drury from celebrating Springfest Market Day 2013 tomorrow.
Weather forecasts predict tomorrow to reach just 12 degrees, with a 20 per cent chance of rain – a stark contrast to today’s warm forecast.
“I don’t really care if it’s cold or hot,” said the eight-year-old Wendouree boy, who claims he can’t feel the cold.
His mother, Lee Pywell, says that beanies, raincoats and umbrellas are all you need to control the chill.
“There is still a lot that’s undercover to see,” she said.
Ms Pywell and her two children have attended the event every year.
The family also regularly uses the lake as a source of entertainment.
“We sometimes ride and run around it and then have a barbecue,” Will said.
Despite the chilly forecast, Ms Pywell said most people would still attend the event.
“It’s become a bit of a tradition thing, really. People go to Springfest.”
As a volunteer with Alfredton Rotary Club, Ms Pywell stresses the importance of local events in creating a close and friendly community environment.
“It’s important to support events in Ballarat,” she says. “We want to keep them here.”
Ms Pywell and her children will attend the annual event tomorrow regardless of the weather.
“It wont sway whether we go or not,” she said.
