Diehard Bruce Springsteen fans know what it means to do ‘the E Street shuffle’ and so, it seems, do ANFD visitors.

Field Days administration officer Mandy Emms said E Street was the busiest street on the field days site.

“E Street is our general interest section and traditionally it was aimed at accommodating small, market-style stallholders, but that has definitely changed,” Mandy said.

“These days major businesses like Telstra choose to be located in E Street because of the enormous amount of foot traffic through there.”

As well as the busy outdoor stalls, E Street is home to two permanent pavilions: The Style Pavilion and The Shed.

“This year the Style Pavilion will again host the popular fashion parades, showcasing clothing and accessories from Style Pavilion stallholders,” Mandy said.

Professional make-up artist Kim Gilbank will co-ordinate the parades, which will be held at 11am and 1pm each day. Floral artist and TAFE teacher Sarah Cox is also back by popular demand and will present demonstrations in the Style Pavilion at 10.30am and 12.30pm daily.

The talented Country Women’s Association (CWA) women will be cooking up a storm – offering scones, jam and cream along with a refreshing cuppa.

Daily CWA cooking demonstrations will be held at 11.45am and 1.45pm.

In the other permanent pavilion, The Shed, visitors can view products from businesses based across Australia.
