Thou­sands more daz­zled at fes­ti­val

North Coast Weekender - - News -

THE sec­ond Kalei­do­scope Fes­ti­val has been hailed “a re­sound­ing suc­cess” with more than 88,000 peo­ple vis­it­ing the Joon­dalup city cen­tre over the four nights.

That com­pares to last year’s award-win­ning in­au­gu­ral fes­ti­val, which at­tracted about 55,000 peo­ple.

Mayor Al­bert Ja­cob con­grat­u­lated “ev­ery­one in­volved in plan­ning and de­liv­er­ing” the event that “clearly cap­tured the imag­i­na­tion of peo­ple from around the Perth met­ro­pol­i­tan area and be­yond”.

He said this year’s pro­gram of “spec­tac­u­lar light in­stal­la­tions, il­lu­mi­na­tions, pro­jec­tions and per­for­mances” was “taken to the next level un­der es­teemed creative di­rec­tor Drew An­thony fea­tur­ing 64 dy­namic artists from WA and in­ter­state”.

“Bring­ing sig­nif­i­cant events such as Kalei­do­scope Fes­ti­val to the Joon­dalup city cen­tre stim­u­lates the lo­cal busi­ness econ­omy and pro­vides en­ter­tain­ment and a vi­brant night life for lo­cal res­i­dents and vis­i­tors,” he said.
