Deakin Twilight festival will be hosted from 4pm to 8pm on 19 September 2015 at Deakin University's Burwood campus.
The fantastic array of free events includes free rides and activities and live entertainment. Roving performers will keep the entire family entertained. Face painting, kid's radio and giveaways as well as farm animals will render the little ones giddy with joy. There will be market stalls selling a diverse range of merchandise. Visitors can purchase food and drinks from the numerous food stalls or by paying a trip to the Mrs Robinsons restaurant. The highlight of the festival will certainly be the Fireworks Spectacular which will see the evening sky light up with dazzling lights of fireworks and fill the air with loud bangs.
Deakin University's Burwood campus is located at 221 Burwood Highway, Burwood. If you opt for the car then you will be delighted to hear that free car parking is available via entrance 1 of Deakin University.

Our experience last time taught us to stay well back from the fireworks. The roped off area near the car park & buildings allows people to come far too close for comfort to the detonation point. I'm talking about little kids in tears (and not just my kid!). Parents also need to be aware that the sound will rebound off the Deakin buildings. I'm sure it would be fine from further back.
