A giant reception welcomed visitors
HAS Perth ever had a more popular pair of visitors than a Little Girl Giant and Diver Giant?
Royal de Luxe’s The Giants drew hundreds of thousands of onlookers into the city across three spectacular days of what the travelling French company call street theatre, but Colin Barnett declared had been “the event of a lifetime” for WA.
On Sunday, Perth bade farewell to the biggest visitors the city had seen, having been captivated along the way by the story of the two giants’ search for one another around our city’s streets and their eventual touching unification on Saturday, right on sunset at a packed Langley Park.
Western Suburbs Weekly photographer Andrew Ritchie said he had never seen such a vibrant atmosphere in the city.
“There was a really good vibe,” Ritchie said.
“It’s a very unique event the way people interacted and reacted to The Giants, it’s probably something we won’t see again.
“It brought the community together.”
The visiting Giants thrilled Perth crowds, attracting a strong turnout.
