World-class il­lu­mi­na­tion fes­ti­val, Kalei­do­scope, will again light up the Joon­dalup City Cen­tre with a bril­liant ar­ray of pro­jec­tions, art, light­ing dis­plays and per­for­mances from Thurs­day 1 Novem­ber to Sun­day 4 Novem­ber. The Joon­dalup CBD will trans­form into an ex­tra­or­di­nary won­der­land of il­lu­mi­na­tion over four nights, show­cas­ing Joon­dalup Li­brary, Cen­tral Park and other icons of the Joon­dalup land­scape in a whole new light. Now in its third year, this spec­tac­u­lar free event brings to­gether artists, cre­ators, en­gi­neers, set de­sign­ers, graphic artists, per­form­ers, vis­ual artists and the lo­cal com­mu­nity to col­lab­o­rate and cre­ate WA’s lead­ing light and tech­nol­ogy fes­ti­val. Last year’s fes­ti­val was awarded the pres­ti­gious Event of the Year Award at the 2017 Parks and Leisure Re­gional Awards for Ex­cel­lence, at­tract­ing more than 88,000 peo­ple to Joon­dalup over four nights.
