Lithgow gets ready to glow

The City of Lithgow’s ‘LithGlow’ festival has sold out in record time.

The festival of creative light installations, scheduled to take place on Saturday, 8 May offers a fun-filled night of activities for the whole family.

“The program for LithGlow this year is excellent and it has been great to see our community support the event with all 3,100 tickets now sold,” Lithgow Mayor Ray Thompson said.

“If you were unable to secure tickets you will not be able to enter the Blast Furnace Park event site but will still be able to see the spectacular Energy Australia sponsored fireworks display across the entire Lithgow valley.

“So look to grab a meal in town, or have a BBQ with family and friends to watch the fireworks with your camera ready.”

In a statement online, Council said the recently announced program for LithGlow would feature amazing lighting displays and tasty food stalls.

“Then live music and roving entertainment starts at 5.30pm and runs to 7pm,” Council said.

“The massive fireworks display, which will light up the sky across Lithgow, for a long duration of eight minutes, will commence at 7pm.

“Food will still be available after the fireworks until 8pm, with all lighting displays still turned on.”

There are also designated ‘hot zones’ in place for this year’s event for those who would like to stay on after the fireworks and keep warm.
