Stage one of the Green Spine on Malop Street, between Moorabool Street and Yarra Street, has been transformed and now we are celebrating with a street festival on Sunday, 12 August 2018 – with an AFL kicking competition as the main event. Footy is the main game in Geelong. So what better way than to celebrate one of Geelong’s main streets than with a celebration of footy? TheGee-Longest Kick on the Green Spine is designed to find out which man and woman has the biggest kick in Greater Geelong. Open to one senior male and female representative per registered AFL Barwon football club and the Cats AFL and VFL teams, the event will see footballs kicked down the middle of Malop Street. Footballs will be kicked from artificial turf on the crossing between Market Square and Westfield. The winning club will receive $500 and the winning player will receive a trophy
This celebration event, which also includes an AFL clinic for kids, street performers, musicians, bike riding stunts, and bicycle maintenance workshops, will be held from 11.30am to 1.30pm.
Malop Street, between Moorabool and Yarra Streets will be closed to traffic for the event.
