Head to Docklands for the annual Firelight Festival, a three day celebration of winter solstice.
Firelight Festival Opening Weekend will deliver spectacular nightly pyrotechnic display, flame jets, fire drums, roving performers and eclectic music.
With over 40 performances a night from all corners of the globe, including gypsy tunes, New Orleans brass, jazz, mariachi, bluegrass and a one-man band, crowds wandering the three precinct promenades will be dazzled with scorching entertainment.
Each night, watch the thrilling burn of one of three handmade, giant wooden sculptures created by Melbourne-based artist Christian Patton. The burns will be accompanied by spectacular pyrotechnics in a combination of new and timeless winter solstice traditions, inviting good fortune and warding off evil spirits for the coming year.
Fire drums, flaming jets and fire performances will keep you warm on the outside while blazing BBQ, sizzling paellas, soups, sweets, mulled wine and toasty hot chocolate will warm you from the inside.
