Light Up Orbost

‘Light Up Orbost’ promises an evening full of fun and free festivities. After a warm welcome and Cultural Dance by our young NAIDOC week troupe, our lantern parade travels from Forest Park up the main street (Nicholson St).  Moving with the street performers and roving musicians, stop in at Tarra Street to celebrate the unveiling of Orbost’s newest mural, gather with family and friends around the open fire and watch the southern cross light up.

In the lead up to ‘Light Up Orbost’, free community lantern design and making workshops will be held at the Orbost Exhibition Centre on Saturday 28th and Sunday 29th May. Supported by experienced artists, join us and learn how to create your own parade piece. No charge and all skill levels catered for.

Orbost will be a hive of activity; games and glo activities provided by Gippsport, treat yourself with great food and music in the courtyard at Kaitlyns Kitchen, famous pizza by Orbost Bakery, stilt walkers, fire twirling, artistic lighting installations in the open market space and so much more!

Definitely a night not to be missed!
