This year's festival will begin on the tail end of Elliston's 2017 come home year event, which will wrap up on Saturday.

But it's not the only party you can attend this weekend.

Arnold's Cove's Heritage Week, which kicked off this past Monday, continues right until Saturday night, when festivities will be concluded with a mummer's parade.
