Fired up for festival celebrating WA Day
An enthusiastic not-for-profit organisation is gearing up to host WA Day celebrations in Mandurah on Monday.
The Makers are inviting members of the community to a winter street party on Tuckey Street from 4-8pm.
The theme for the afternoon’s celebration will be fire, with live music, dancing, a variety of food trucks including Moroccan, Italian, Filipino and Spanish — and even kung-fu demonstrations on offer.
The Makers chief executive Rhys Williams said he was excited to be a part of the WA Day festival.
“Fire is something all cultures have shared throughout history and I think some of the most special aspects of the event will be the huge variety of culture on show, especially the camp fire stories with our Aboriginal elder Harry Nannup,” he said. “I’d love to see a big turnout in support of the different cultures in and around Mandurah.”
Fires will be lit all the way down the street, with people encouraged to grab some food and get cosy while watching professional fire dancers and listen to live music.
The all-ages festival is the first of its kind for Mandurah.
