Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - News -

AN in­cred­i­ble 45,000 peo­ple at­tended the Town of Vic­to­ria Park’s in­au­gu­ral Vic Park Sum­mer Street Party last month.

With three en­ter­tain­ment stages, pop-up bars and food stalls, fes­ti­val-go­ers were treated to an ar­ray of live mu­sic, de­li­cious food and good times.

But it was the hi­jack­ing of Bal­moral Ho­tel’s first floor that caught the most at­ten­tion.

With four gi­ant in­flat­able wav­ing ten­ta­cle arms pour­ing from the build­ing, it was an as­ton­ish­ing pub­lic art spec­ta­cle by UK artist Filthy Luker that stole the show.
