Weather forces entertainment cancellation

Friday, 8 November 2019

Forecast high winds and rain have led to the cancellation of the entertainment and fireworks at the launch of Geelong’s Floating Christmas Tree.
Entertainment from a range of performers, including The Mik Maks, was due to begin at 7pm tonight.
However, the performances and other scheduled events along the Waterfront, including the arrival of Santa via a boat and a fireworks display, can no longer safely proceed.
The lighting of the Christmas tree will proceed as scheduled at 9pm and the Christmas lighting projection show on City Hall will begin at 9.45pm.
From tomorrow, the 25-metre tall Christmas tree will be lit from 8.30pm until midnight.
The projections, by local artist Matt Bonner, will be shown on City Hall’s Gheringhap Street façade from 9pm until midnight.
Both displays can be viewed nightly until 7 January 2020.
