This series of illuminations is called the Parade of Light and it's going to be one of the hottest events in town.

All along the Terrace, you'll see colour and light. Below is a list of the light shows that visitors to the Fringe will be treated to:

Parade of Light: Tangkuinyendi Yabarra (Dreaming Light)
Yellaka, the stars of the Tindo Utpurndee Sunset Ceremony come to life on the giant walls of The South Australian Institute Building at the State Library of South Australia. The light story brings us their stories and spiritual culture.

Parade of Light: A Balloon Dog's Life
The mascot of the 2018 Adelaide Fringe Festival is the very cute balloon dog. The story of his (mis)adventures as he tries his paw at occupations that really are not suitable for a dog made from balloons will be projected onto the front of the Bonython Hall at The University of Adelaide on North Terrace.

Parade of Light: Borealis
At the It's been a dream of mine since forever to see an aurora. I've travelled to Tasmania and New Zealand and stood outside with my eyes to the skies in the hope of seeing the Southern Lights - Aurora Australis. I may still see them! One day... But for the time being I know that I'll be heading to the South Australian Museum's front lawns for this extraordinary Fringe Festival projection of the Aurora Borealis - the Northern Lights.

Parade of Light: Lindy Lee's Life of Stars
This projection onto the front facade of the Art Gallery of South Australia is based on the real life works of renowned Australian artist Lindy Lee.

Parade of Light: Roll Up, Roll Up!
2018 is the 125th Anniversary of Women's Suffrage in South Australia. This Parade of Light will focus on the women's movement, particularly the accomplishments of Adelaide pioneer Muriel Matters. Also included in this light show on the Mitchell Building at the University of Adelaide will be an amazing moving circus themed billboard.

Parade of Light: Lumifonica
The front of Elder Hall facade will become a light and music centre. Play, interact and be curious - light up the night and have some fun!

Digital projections on the heritage buildings along North Terrace are an incredibly popular event during Adelaide's Festival period. There's something new and exciting each year and in 2018 we will be treated yet again to another spectacular and family-friendly event.

The Parade of Light will be switched on each night at 8.30 pm and run until midnight. The whole event is Rated G and is free.
