This will be a four-day festival, which will be both exciting and very interesting. The City of Melbourne will be the host to the 2019 ICD Property Light Up Melbourne Festival at Birrarung Marr.
The Light Up Festival will be on from 6th April at 10.00 am till 9th April 2019 at 10.00 pm. It will be held at Birrarung Marr, Lower Terrace, Melbourne. The festival will be honouring the Chinese Lantern Festival.
Lanterns are used during festivities in China as they are a tradition and are thought to bring joy, hope and happiness to the surroundings. The centrepiece will be a lit up by an Eternal Dragon, which symbolises good fortune, strength and nobility.
This festival will be taking over 8,000 square metres of space and will light up the north bank of the Yarra River. The illuminations will be larger than life custom-built lanterns. There will also be some market stalls and entertainment for all.
The festival will put on a display of nine major lantern light installations with a 27m long x 6m high Eternal Dragon as the centrepiece! Wow, this will be an amazing sight to behold and one not to be missed!
There will be a huge range of market stalls for you to shop at with over 80 speciality food and trader stalls for you to experience. These will include a Little Sichuan area, where the very best Sichuanese cuisine will be on display.
Why not have something to eat and then sit back and enjoy the great variety of cultural performances and entertainment which will be happening on the main stage. Or you could test your skills and perhaps win some prizes at the amusement games.
It is really an event not to be missed!
