We are back! 2022 Lights on the Lake

We are excited to advise that Lights on the Lake Community Festival will be held on 4 December 2022 between 4 – 8 pm in Crummunda park, Coongarra Esp, Wurtulla on the banks of our beautiful Lake Currimundi.

Download a handy program and map here.

The fun will start at 4pm with music and entertainment all afternoon and evening and supervised kids’ activities from 4 – 6pm. Come and try your hand beating out a rhythm in  the free drumming circle.

Treat yourself and the kids to some great food with plenty of tasty choices. Or get a group of friends together and bring your families, a picnic blanket and hamper to set up on the grass to watch the fun on stage or on the bank of the Lake to watch the water parade of decorated and lit kayaks and canoes from dusk.

Santa will arrive from across the lake around 6pm before the dazzling water parade of kayaks and canoes festooned with Christmas lights and decorations commences as darkness falls. Start decorating your kayak or canoe now. You can register in advance (see below) or on the day before 5.30pm.

This is a family event that will appeal to all ages. We’ll finish up by 8pm so you won’t be out too late on Sunday night. If you live nearby consider walking, cycling or paddling to the event. The park is right next to bus stops on Nicklin Way. You will probably meet a neighbour or two because it’s a chance for our community to get out and have an enjoyable afternoon in our own beautiful part of the world.

Put the date in your calendar now and we’ll keep you posted.
