ACROBATIC performers wowed the crowd at last week’s colourful launch of the City of Perth’s Winter Fest at the Flour Factory.

Festival events kick off on June 30 and includes awe-inspiring entertainment and creative performances will take place in public spaces, shopping malls and laneways to bring the city to life.

City of Perth Chair of Commissioners Eric Lumsden said Winter Fest would create a vibrant, culturally inspired city as the temperature dropped.

“Perth city will come alive in July as visitors and residents discover new events and experiences,” he said.

“Far from going into hibernation, the city will be buzzing with activities to warm the hearts and minds of little ones and adults alike.”

He said there was also a chance to discover kids’ workshops and intimate live performances under a 12-metre wide dome, brightly coloured laneways, surprise music events and beautifully falling snow.
