Leedy goes high tech

LEEDERVILLE is set to shine on Sunday December 4 with a more tech-savvy Light Up Leederville Carnival.

The fifth annual carnival, organised by UpBeat Events, will see the traditional fireworks display replaced with a five-metre LED light dome, “magical” raining lights and an angel wings display.

UpBeat creative director and Vincent councillor Jimmy Murphy said residents will be “impressed” with the calibre of activities at this year’s carnival.

“Following previous events, community feedback has suggested people are looking for a more cultural experience and this year will definitely bring that,” Mr Murphy said.

“A lot of our installations are very artistically engaging, with the angel wings being created using local recycled products.

“We have made sure to appeal to every member of the community,” Mr Murphy said.

The 2016 event will be powered by Synergy and have a focus on the use of renewable energy. The carnival will also feature market stalls, family attractions and live music.

Community group Leederville Connect hosted a long table supper earlier this month to help launch the carnival and raise funds for the local community.

The Leedy strip will be closed to traffic for the festival, which runs from noon to 9pm. Entry is free.
