Wynnum Illuminations Festival

On Saturday 21st June, Wynnum will host its first Illuminations Festival.

As the official website describes, “Colourful lanterns, projections and illumination displays [will] light up the foreshore adjacent to the Wynnum Wading Pool and Jetty. The area comes to life with fire twirlers, a Punch and Judy Show, street entertainers, small amusement rides and music. On Pandanus Beach, artists are demonstrating sandcastle creations.  A market is open, featuring local food and artefacts.”

A street lantern parade is planned at dusk with children from local schools walking together from the former Wynnum Central School site down from central Wynnum to the Wading Pool, placing lanterns around and in the pool. Later in the evening, an Aboriginal fire ceremony conducted by the local Winnam Tribe will be held on Pandanus Beach.

Lots more is planned… more details as soon as we have them.
