Triple header of events on fore­shore

Pilbara News - - Front Page - Pe­ter de Krui­jff

The Dampier fore­shore will light up next week­end in a night of fire, mu­sic and lanterns.

A triple header of events will con­verge on with the City of Kar­ratha and Rio Tinto’s Twi­light Tunes along­side The Leukaemia Foundation Light the Night Lantern Walk and the Hamp­ton Har­bour Boat and Sail­ing Club Guy Fawkes fire­works ex­trav­a­ganza.

Guy Fawkes has been held in Dampier for more than 20 years and started as bon­fire night be­fore the days of fire bans and when it was less frowned upon to burn an ef­figy of a would-be English as­sas­sin.

HHBSC com­modore John Lally said this year’s py­rotech­nics dis­play would of course be big­ger than last year’s.

“We put some ex­tra money in to make it a bit big­ger,” he said. “Com­bined with the walk for the foundation and twi­light tunes … it just makes one great night.”

Mayor Pe­ter Long said it was great they could pro­vide the com­mu­nity with th­ese sorts of events.

“The Leukaemia Foundation Light the Night Lantern Walk is some­thing very spe­cial and ties in with lantern walks hap­pen­ing across the coun­try,” he said.

“This is a beau­ti­ful chance to re­mem­ber and stand along­side friends and fam­ily who have been af­fected by Leukaemia and is a ter­rific fundraiser.”

The event starts at 5.30pm on Novem­ber 7 at the Hamp­ton Har­bour Boat and Sail­ing Club.

There will also be food stalls and car­ni­val rides for chil­dren.
