Festival fun in Docklands

Festival fun in Docklands Image

Locals and visitors were treated to an entertainment extravaganza during the Docklands Arts, Laughs and Blues Festival last month.

It’s the second year the event has been held in Docklands and, according to event organiser Melissa Head, more than 3000 people attended the six-day festival.
Ms Head said Wonderland Spiegeltent had sell-out shows nightly and presented 14 events including circus cabaret show Papillon, a Search for a Funny Bone competition, a stand-up comedy gala and burlesque act Vamp and Burn (pictured).

Families were also entertained by a live wild life show, where kids could get up close to a koala, crocodile and wedge-tail eagle.

According to Ms Head, the free blues carnival on October 6 was well received, with 10 bands playing on four stages throughout the day.

Docklands will be highlighted again next year, with Ms Head confirming she will hold the festival in 2014.

“We are committed to presenting this event and will be applying for funding and sponsorship for 2014,” Ms Head said.

Ms Head said next year the blues carnival will be held as a separate event on a different weekend, while the Docklands Arts and Laughs Festival will again be held in October.  

Wonderland Fun Park and the Wonderland Spiegeltent team are also gearing up for a jam-packed Christmas program including Santa’s Christmas Spectacular and the Wonderland Carnivale.

Ms Head said the Wonderland Carnivale offered a fantastic Christmas party option for small businesses, offices or groups of friends.
