Weather forces entertainment cancellation

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.
