Warracknabeal’s historic Commercial Hotel is now called The Creekside Hotel.
Hotel owners Kevin and Sally Gebert used an inaugural Creekside Food Fest on the banks of Yarriambiack Creek last weekend to announce the change.
The Geberts moved to Warracknabeal from the inner-Sydney suburb of Balmain in October 2011.
The hotel has been known as ‘The Commercial’ since 1870.
About 500 people from the Wimmera and beyond attended the Food Fest, which capped off a big week in the northern Wimmera town.
The Food Fest featured five specialty food marquees and 13 different types of food in the hotel’s waterfront beer garden. Musician Craig Somers provided entertainment while a jumping castle, juggling performer and lolly table were popular with children.
The Creekside Food Fest builds on the town’s Y-Fest, which started 15 years ago and is now one of the Wimmera’s biggest Easter events.
Sally Gerbert said she and Kevin were happy to end to the week with a relaxing day out that also showcased ‘a terrific vibrant community.’
