The new Mandurah Bridge will be lit up in spectacular fashion this Sunday during the Mandurah Bridge Celebration Picnic.

The community is invited to join a family friendly picnic to celebrate the completion of the $53 million Mandurah Traffic Bridge Replacement Project.

There will be fun for everyone including an impressive coloured light show on the bridge, twilight market stalls, live music, pony rides and children’s activities.

Stories and pictures celebrating Mandurah’s rich social history will also be incorporated into the celebration with an exhibition at Mandurah Community Museum and guided walking tours on offer.

A commemorative plaque will be unveiled by Transport Minister Rita Saffioti, Mandurah MLA David Templeman and Mandurah Mayor Rhys Williams at 5.30pm.

Free parking will be available at Hall Park.

The celebration kicks off at 4.30pm with the lighting of the bridge at 7pm.
