WA acts Bernardine and Stillwater Giants will take to the stage in Hillarys on February 25 to help celebrate a local leg of the Queen’s Baton Relay.
The City of Joondalup’s End of Day Celebration event at Whitfords Nodes Park will start with food trucks and free children’s activities from 4pm before Perth singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Bernardine performs her indie, alternative folk-pop tunes.
The Queen’s Baton Relay, which will be travelling north along West Coast Drive and continuing to Whitfords Avenue before winding up at Whitfords Nodes Park, is due to arrive for a special ceremony at 5.30pm.
Four-piece band Stillwater Giants, originally from Margaret River, will then rock the stage with their falsetto vocals, harmonies and indie-pop sound from 6pm.
While in the City, the Queen’s Baton will be in the hands of 20 local baton bearers as part of its travels across every state and territory of Australia in the lead- up to the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games’ Opening Ceremony on April 4.
Joondalup Mayor Albert Jacob said the City’s coastline would provide a “stunning backdrop for the thousands of people that come from far and wide to line the street and cheer on the batonbearers”.
“Our leg of the relay will then conclude at Whitfords Nodes Park – a popular reserve for recreation with events such as triathlons regularly hosted there.”
