I’m a proud resident of Frankston. Yep, Frankston. I’m not going to say I live on the Mornington Peninsula, I live in Frankston and it’s rad! Our town gets an extremely bad rap via the media, sometimes justified by crappy things that take place, but mostly it’s pretty damn good. So many awesome people, places and things take place and live here. We have a beautiful beach front, a fantastic shopping centre in Bayside, some fab food and coffee places popping up and loads of family friendly parks and hangouts. #alltheimportantthings #beachshopscoffee Plus we are the gateway to the Peninsula with all its amazing wineries and barely an hour out of Melbourne. It truly is a great spot to be!
For the month of January I’m going to be running a competition over on Instagram (here) about Frankston and all that is ace about it. Using the hashtag #FamilyFoodFashionFrankston, which for me encapsulates all that is Frankston and what Frankston has to offer, simply post a pic on Instagram of what you love about this town. It could be the sunsets at the beach, ice creams on the pier, picnics in the Botanical Gardens, barefoot bowls at the Bowls Club, coffee at Stereo, your fave shop at Bayside, the lookout at Olivers Hill at night, some of the gorgeous old or new homes around town, whatever you love about Frankston needs to be shared. The winner will receive 2 x $30 Bayside Shopping Centre vouchers, and the three runners up will each receive a $30 centre voucher as well! Hellooooooo shopping!
There is plenty happening in Frankston town over January…the Food Truck Popups at the Yacht Club, the Waterfront Festival, the Sand Sculpting Exhibition, markets including the hugely popular Mermaid Sorority Market and Sunday Market on Young Street and the production of Wicked by PLOS at the Arts Centre and sooooooo much more. So make sure you snap a pic (or 31…one a day!) of Frankston, and what you love about it and use the hashtag, also tag me so I can see it, if you’re private please send me the pic to make sure it’s entered (sometimes they’re hard to see). I’ll be regramming my faves and then on Feb.1st the four lucky snappers will be announced on Instagram with the winning photo.
This is a pic I snapped at our beach the other day #FamilyFoodFashionFrankston
