Kaleidoscope Festival 2017

Kaleidoscope Festival returns for its second year and is set to transform Joondalup City Centre yet again into an extraordinary wonderland of electrifying illumination and art from Thursday 9th to Sunday 12th November.

Entertainment, music, and food from 5pm, and lights on from 7.30pm to 10.30pm.

Scitech shows are on from 5.15pm to 7.15pm, we stayed for the bubble show which the kids loved, especially the butane bubbles.

Make sure you stop and check out street performers, my kids really enjoyed the Portrait-Palazzo photo booth – bring some coins along and ‘pay as you feel’.

Before the light show, we decided to grab something to eat, there are so many food trucks this year and a great variety! We decided to order from Get Chips or Die Frying, we ordered Alex-Lamb-Der and Popcorn Chicken – both meals were absolutely delicious! There is a full list of food truck vendors on the Kaleidoscope Website.
