Mid-winter festivities to be filled with fire and lights

JUNE 2015 |

WINTER FIRE is firing up to be a cracker of a night. So wrap up warmly and bring all the family for an evening of fire, fun, food and fireworks.

On the night you will be able to wander between 12 fire drums, around which different activities will take place including music, story-telling and poetry readings.

There will be marshmallows to toast, hot chocolate to warm you up and fire twirlers to watch.

The Circle Dance Band and dancers will start at 5.20 pm so remember to come early. There will be a great fireworks display followed by a bonfire constructed by Deputy Mayor, Michael Kelly.

Arts Deloraine, Rotary, Apex, Lions, Fire Brigade, SES and the Show Society are all working together to make this an evening to remember and one which we hope will become an annual event.

A raffle will be drawn on the night with a prize of a patio firepot made out of sheet metal. Raffle tickets can be bought early at Elemental Art Space or can be purchased on the night.

The gate will open at the Deloraine Showgrounds at 5 pm Saturday, 27th June with a $10 entry fee for adults. Entry for children is free but all children must be accompanied by adults as this is a fire event.

Please bring a torch as lighting is limited and you will want to find your car again.

Most events will take place behind the Furmage Building.

For further information ring Jaqui at Arts Deloraine on 6362 4335.
