Fed Square will be introducing different food trucks and carts on site each weekend from Friday to Sunday, and during special events from 11am to 8pm/9pm. This is a great opportunity for city dwellers to experience Melbourne's street food scene, so if you’ve got a food truck and are looking for somewhere to start selling your street food offering, email email@example.com with your company name, cuisine, menu, Streatrader registration certificate, insurance and vehicle specs, weight and dimensions (axle to axle).

The story follows a brother and sister, whose vivid imagination propells them into airborne adventures that come to life with giant balloons, umbrellas, snow and kites. Accompanied by an ever-changing soaring soundscape, Air Play is a wordless, laugh-out-loud experience for kids and parents alike.
