Early Eve at Footscray Park

This event has finished

Want to do the fireworks with the kids at a civilised hour? Footscray - as ever - is doing its own thing and going one better.

The trees of the Edwardian period public gardens will be magially illuminated with an installation by locals Moonmother Productions, and there'll be jumping castles, carnival games and a swag of food trucks (bring a picnic blanket!).

From 6.30pm onwards, comedian Justin Hamilton will host an evening full of music - The ReChords with Swing Patrol; Public Opinion Afro Orchestra; Vika and Linda Bull; and ABBA tribute band Bjorn Again - followed by the fireworks at 9.30pm.
