A gi­ant re­cep­tion wel­comed vis­i­tors

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Business -

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.”
