Fire Night at Flagstaff Hill
TOASTED marshmallows, cannon firing and live music will all be part of the family fun at Flagstaff Hill this weekend.
The maritime village will host its inaugural ‘Fire Night’ tomorrow (Saturday) from 5pm-10pm.
The event, which is $5 for adults and free for children and members, will feature live music, food vendors, a twilight cannon firing and fires along the waterfront – with marshmallows available for toasting.
Warrnambool mayor Debbie Arnott said the aim of the event was to encourage people to embrace the conditions and enjoy a unique event. “We’ve seen with the success of the Solstice Search Party that people are willing to rug up and head out for winter events,” she said.
“It’s all about using the conditions to your advantage. The early sunset means things like a cannon firing at dusk and toasting marshmallows on a fire can all be done at a more family-friendly time.”
As well as being home to Australia’s richest collection of shipwreck artefacts, Flagstaff Hill really is a haven for kids.
With farm animals, open spaces, and a working 19th century cannon, Flagstaff Hill offers something for everyone at an affordable price. Tickets to tomorrow night’s event will be available at the door.
