Quiet Sunday afternoons in Kiama are about to get a lot more lively, with a new family fun day set to take over Hindmarsh Park.
This Sunday will be the inaugural Music In The Park, with a range of home-grown talent taking to the amphitheatre stage for an afternoon of song and entertainment with kids' rides, face painting and a farmyard nursery.
"It's all about utilising the park and the stage, because it has been underused over the years," said event organiser Charlie D'Amico.
"Kiama is one of the most picturesque towns in the country, so we wanted a festival-type live concert and family event happening regularly."
Starting on Sunday, the concerts will then happen on the first Sunday of each month.
Kiama Deputy Mayor Warren Steel said the council had been spurred to support the events after the success of a benefit concert for the Kiama Hurricanes earlier this year.
"It is such a great amphitheatre there and it is the sort of thing we have to do, entertain people on the weekend," Cr Steel said.
"Kiama is a tourist town. We need to make sure people enjoy themselves while they're here."
Alison Johnston, Sean Emmett and Purple Daze will provide the musical entertainment on Sunday.
Mr D'Amico said it was also an opportunity for musicians to play to a large crowd.
"There is not enough opportunities for performers and songwriters to perform - we have an abundance of very talented musicians in the area who are starving for this sort of chance to play."
Festivities kick off at noon and musicians interested in playing can contact email@example.com.
