All the Rivers Run actor John Waters will be in Echuca on weekend to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the well-known Australian mini-series.
The Port of Echuca will host a sailpast and fireworks display on Saturday to celebrate the anniversary, in conjunction with the Echuca Heritage Family Festival, which will be held from 10am to 4pm Saturday and Sunday in Murray Esplanade.
Families are invited to view the event from the refurbished wharf, which will feature a jumping castle and face painter to keep the children entertained.
Mr Waters is expected to reminisce about his filming days in Echuca when he provides a commentary of the sailpast.
Port of Echuca manager Mark Blunden said he was thrilled Mr Waters would take part.
‘‘Thirty years on, our visitors still comment on their love for this iconic Australian mini series,’’ he said.
The sailpast will start at 7pm from the Echuca boat ramp and the flotilla includes PS Pevensey, PS Canberra, PS Alexander Arbuthnot, PS Emmylou, MV Mary Ann, PS Ranger, SL Breezy, Tooraloora and Perricoota.
Once all boats are moored at Echuca wharf at about 8pm, a fireworks display will end the night.
The wharf will be open from 6pm. Entry is $6 for adults and $3 for children aged four to 14.
