THE City of Joon­dalup’s jour­ney so far will be cel­e­brated at the 2018 Joon­dalup Fes­ti­val when it re­turns to the city cen­tre this week­end.

This year’s theme of ‘Per­form Cre­ate Re­flect’ cel­e­brates the his­tory of the City, which will cel­e­brate its 20th an­niver­sary on July 1.

The fes­ti­val site will fea­ture seven in­ter­ac­tive hubs along Cen­tral Walk, telling the Joon­dalup story through his­tor­i­cal pho­tos, hands-on ac­tiv­i­ties and a com­mem­o­ra­tive trail brochure.

Peo­ple with their own story about Joon­dalup can also record an oral his­tory at a car­a­van in Cen­tral Walk.

For the sec­ond year, the fes­ti­val will be held over three nights – March 23 to 25 – with the Fri­day night fea­tur­ing Syd­ney act Time Min­ders rov­ing Cen­tral Park and the open­ing per­for­mance of the Com­mu­nity Choral Project with the mu­sic of Queen.

In­ter­na­tional of­fer­ings across the fes­ti­val will in­clude the hand-to-hand ac­ro­bat­ics of Fin­land’s Kate and Pasi, cir­cus per­form­ers Qu­atuor Stomp from Que­bec and a colour­ful in­stal­la­tion by Emmy Award-win­ner Eric­mu­ni­ d480856 Rieger – aka Hot Tea – from the US.

The an­nual twi­light lan­tern pa­rade will re­turn on the Satur­day evening with more par­tic­i­pants than ever.

This year’s theme is ‘The Wa­ter Story’: a mag­i­cal story of re­flec­tion and sus­tain­abil­ity based on Lake Joon­dalup.

The City has also com­mis­sioned cul­tural leader Den­nis Sim­mons to de­liver a world pre­miere Abo­rig­i­nal cul­tural ex­pe­ri­ence each night as the sun sets, cul­mi­nat­ing in the fes­ti­val fi­nale on the Sun­day evening. Tyler Brown
