On Saturday 9 May, we’re encouraging residents to drag out the leg-warmers and fluoro gear for a ‘totally awesome’ 80s themed Driveway Disco, as part of the City of Gosnells Home But Not Alone initiative.

While maintaining social distance, residents are encouraged to set up a dance party in their driveways and boogie with their neighbours in this livestream event.

Some lucky streets will also have a visit from the City’s disco truck, which will be loaded with a DJ, giant LED screens, PA system and moving lights.

Mayor David Goode urged residents to nominate their street through the Home But Not Alone Facebook group.

“Over 30 streets will be visited, selected on a range of things – it’s not just a popularity contest, we want to visit those streets where the people really want to enjoy this experience, so be creative with your nomination,” Mayor Goode said.

“It’s a good idea to talk to your neighbours and get as many household nominations as possible from your street. Even if our disco truck doesn’t make it to you, the event will be livestreamed on Facebook with all the music, so you can have your own driveway disco.

“This is all about sharing good vibes and great tunes, giving people a moment to forget the day-to-day stuff and just focus on doing something fun.”

Driveway Disco will be telecast simultaneously on Facebook Live where messages to family and friends will also be screened.
