Family Fun & Fireworks at Lake Mac Festival

| |

Enjoy two big days of free family fun at the 2020 Lake Mac Festival with waterfront events at Croudace Bay, Pelican, Swansea, Wangi Wangi, Rathmines and Speers Point plus Saturday fireworks!

Festivities kick off on Saturday 25 January in Thomas H Halton Park at Croudace Bay with a free breakfast run by local community groups and a family fun morning. This event runs from 7.30am to noon and features live music, yoga, family-friendly games and children’s entertainers Little Scallywagz.

Saturday evening will see colourful lakeside activations at Wangi Wangi, Rathmines, Pelican and Swansea, each with its own entertainment, live music, market stalls and food vendors. All four sites will operate 4-10.30pm, followed by with a fireworks display over the water at 9pm.

A traditional Australia Day citizenship ceremony at Council’s Speers Point administration building on Sunday morning will naturalise more than 90 people from all corners of the globe, while a laid-back concert in Speers Point Park from 3-7pm will keep the good times rolling. The Sunday Sessions event will feature local artists Tim Harding, GENR8, Hurricane Fall and the Komiti Levai Band. Bring your own picnic or grab some food from food trucks at the park.

All Council events across the Australia Day weekend are free. For more information, visit the Lake Mac City Council website.
