Four coordinated fireworks displays will light up the night sky in the City of Gosnells on Monday 1 June, as part of WA Day celebrations.

Mayor David Goode said fireworks would be simultaneously lit at 7pm from various locations across the City.

“Regular activities to celebrate WA Day won’t be happening this year, so the City is giving residents an opportunity to embrace our community spirit and what it means to be a West Aussie,” the Mayor said.

“These will be high-range fireworks, so they’ll be visible from most places around the City and we’ll be providing vantage points at numerous parks to ensure the appropriate physical distancing is maintained.

“We’re encouraging people to enjoy a family picnic, have a barbecue in their driveway or a game of cricket before the big show at 7pm, which is perfect for families with young children.”

A soundtrack for the fireworks will be simulcast on 107.3 Heritage FM and updates will be posted throughout the night on the City’s Programs and Events Facebook page.

Some of the food truck vendors that attend the City’s regular events will also be travelling throughout the suburbs.

The WA Day fireworks are part of the City’s Home But Not Alone campaign, which has been connecting the community through kindness during the COVID-19 pandemic.
