PERCY Street between Henty and Julia streets will be the home to an Easter Saturday Fair adding vibrancy to the area and fun for locals and tourists.
The fair, on April 19, is a collaborative effort between the Portland Observer, the Revitalise Portland group, the Portland Community Markets and Percy St traders.
The street will be closed to traffic and will include local traders displaying their wares, stalls in the middle of the street with 30 stalls confirmed, live music, children’s activities and even a visit from the Easter Bunny.

“We are providing something to do in Portland for this long weekend and also involving the traders to support and enhance retail.
