Jazz up celebration with firework thrill in gardens

HOLROYD Gardens will be at its magnificent best when the community comes together for an evening of fun, food and entertainment to celebrate Australian Day on Friday, January 26.

The annual event, from 6pm to 9pm, will feature live entertainment including Mitch Tambo, Tarisai Vushe, and Cassy and the Bossa Beats, a variety of food trucks and market stalls and a spectacular fireworks display which will light up the night sky and conclude celebrations.
Mitch is undoubtedly one of Australia’s most unique and electrifying First Nations entertainers, often hailed as “the new voice of our generation”, Tarisai is an award-winning artist and music theatre performer in Australia and a top five Australian Idol contestants who performs in various musicals, and the Cassy and the Bossa Beats will bring Brazilian jazz music with its unique dance feels, such as the samba and the bossa nova, to the festival.
A special treat for young visitors will be a visit from Australia’s favourite Blue Heeler sister duo, Bluey and Bingo, who will be performing as part of the Bluey and Bingo Live Interactive Experience, which will include meet and greets and themed craft activities.
The day will also include the Citizen of the Year Awards, held in conjunction with a special Australia Day Citizenship Ceremony at The Holroyd Centre, where 50 new residents will join the Cumberland community as our newest Australian citizens.
Mayor Lisa Lake said Australia Day was a special time and encouraged everyone to get along to Holroyd Gardens and join in the celebrations.
“Australia Day gives us all an opportunity to come together and acknowledge our cultures, celebrate our country and welcome new citizens into our community,” she said.
“There will be something for all ages to enjoy including food trucks and market stalls and a spectacular fireworks display.”
