Burwood Chinatown x Messina Ice Cream Party 2020

1500 Free Scoops of  Messina Ice Cream

Burwood Chinatown successfully hosted a free family-friendly party with 1500 scoops of Sydney’s favourite Messina ice cream, to promote the #BacktoBurwood campaign in support for our small businesses during COVID-19.

The party was featured on major media publishers including Broadsheet, Concrete Playground, Time Out and The Urban List.

In addition to free ice cream, we also included a range of free activities, from jumping castle to face-painting and giant bubble performances.

Full support has been provided by local council and its members to encourage people shop and dine local.
