Ettalong businesses asked to join in Red Carpet Day
Peninsula Tourism Partners is urging Ettalong businesses to be part of Ettalong's fourth Red Carpet Day which will take place on the morning of September 15.
"This is our town's day to celebrate and we want to promote the fact that Ettalong is a great place to live, work, eat, stay and play," said president Ms Kim Cole.
She is asking Ettalong businesses to band together to offer discounts, one offs and special deals, in an effort to drive tourism to the town.
Sporting clubs, community groups and musicians are being asked to pitch in with a number of activities and attractions to compliment the event.
Member for Gosford Ms Liesl Tesch is expected to open the proceedings with a red ribbon cutting at the Ettalong Diggers carpark, Ms Cole said.
Among the activities, the Studebaker Car Club of NSW and the Central Coast Holden Car Club will be putting on a vintage Show and Shine display where visitors can vote for their favourite car.
Other attractions include a trike display from Trike Tours and Pitstop Arcade, DJ Glen Hunt, dance displays, flash mobs, buskers and street entertainers, information stands from local community services, an art exhibition trail from local artists and children's face painting.
Red Carpet Day was first held last year as a means to bolster the ailing Ettalong business community which was suffering from disrupted trade at the time due to the state of the Ettalong channel preventing the operation of the Palm Beach ferry service.
