GET ready for a sizzling ‘Summer of Entertainment’ as the Shire of Mundaring comes alive with a series of vibrant, free family-friendly events, promising a season to remember.

Community members can dive into the series with Aquafest at Bilgoman Aquatic Centre on Friday, March 8 from 6pm to 8pm.

The outdoor pool festival promises an evening of aquatic fun featuring a live DJ, real-life mermaids, inflatables and amusement rides, along with a free sausage sizzle.

Shire President Paige McNeil said from an outdoor pool festival to soulful tunes and a youth festival, the 2024 ‘Summer of Entertainment’ series has something for everyone.

“The shire is proud to host this series of events once again, which are a much loved feature on our summer events calendar where community, culture, and celebration come together,” she said.

A fortnight later, Sculpture Park will come alive with the sound of music when Spirit of Alba headline the blues and folk live concert, on Saturday, March 23 from 5.30pm to 7pm.

Presented by the Mundaring Folk and Blues Club in the tradition of Twilight Tunes, Spirit of Alba are back by popular demand.

Ms McNeil said concert-goers are encouraged to bring their own picnic and enjoy the soulful melodies under the open sky.

“It’s an evening that harmonises community spirit with the best of blues and folk music,” she said.

The ‘Summer of Entertainment’ series will reach its peak when Harry Riseborough Oval transforms into a vibrant hub of energy at Youth Fest on Friday, April 12 from 12pm to 3pm.

Celebrating Youth Week WA, young people aged 12 to 17 can enjoy a Live DJ, skate clinic, laser skirmish, gaming trailer, virtual reality, bungee trampolines, pedal kart racing, art and craft, a free barbecue and more.
