Youth Week to end at Freo Esplanade Reserve

A WEEK of celebrating youth and young people will end with a bang at Fremantle’s Esplanade Reserve.

National Youth Week will officially close in Fremantle with Switch It Up, an afternoon full of skating competitions, parkour, a silent disco, roving circus, live music, food vans and a chill zone.

The event, a collaboration between the City of Fremantle, Propel Youth Arts and the Fremantle SWITCH, will also see a shake up of the popular youth forum, which this year will be held on the Freo Skyview Wheel.

Fremantle SWITCH spokesman Keane Bourke said they had focused on being as innovative as possible and the decision to hold the forum on the ferris wheel had been well received.

“It’s been great to see this crazy idea develop into a reality through our work with Propel Youth Arts WA,” he said.

Fremantle mayor Brad Pettitt said the Ferris Forum was a great example of the innovative thinking coming from tomorrow’s leaders.

National Youth Week runs from March 31 to April 9.
