Shepparton’s Byron Macumber and Dale Hutchinson taught people how to juggle fruit.

Mooving Art artist TANK will be painting a brand new cow in Federation Square in upcoming days.

Dookie the Musical cast members sang songs from their coming musical.

SPC Factory Sales warehouse manager Dean Gauchi and owner Samuel Prentice show local produce and hand out free beans and spaghetti on the first day.

Nicole Trungove and Natasha Downie taught children how to milk a cow.

A taste of Shepparton was on display in Melbourne’s Federation Square yesterday for the opening day of Shepp Square.

Hundreds of bystanders were treated to music from the performance of Dookie the Musical, as well as cow milking and arts and crafts hosted by Enchanted Rainbow Entertainment, all while surrounded by Mooving Art.

The Cheeky Grog Cider Co and Jetjas Cafe served food and drinks and SPC Factory Sales handed out free beans and spaghetti.

Shepparton Information Centre staff answered questions, as did City of Greater Shepparton Mayor Kim O’Keeffe.

‘‘No other regional city has ever done this in the heart of Melbourne,’’ Cr O’Keeffe said.

‘‘I’m really proud of the event.

‘‘We’ve covered everything and we’re making the most of the time we have here.’’

On from April 9 to April 21, the first week is based around tourism opportunities, while the second will focus on investment and lifestyle.

‘‘We’re here to give people a taste of Greater Shepparton and hopefully get them up there, relocating or investing in business,’’ Greater Shepparton City Council’s marketing and communications manager Fiona Le Gassick said.

Real estate agents will be in Federation Square for the second week, talking about new housing developments in Greater Shepparton, while panel conversations will be organised, discussing water and Shepparton Art Museum.

‘‘We are really showing people the lifestyle and opportunities we have in Shepparton and reminding everyone about us,’’ Cr O’Keeffe said.
