Ariah Park Light Show to Go Ahead This Friday Night

Published on 14 September 2022


After being postponed due to wet weather last week, and despite more rain predicted this week, the organisers of the Ariah Park Light Show “Spark in The Park” have decided to press ahead with the free community event this Friday night, September 16 starting at sunset at 6.00pm. The event is part of the NSW Government Reviving Regional NSW grant program.

The Little Projector Company from Melbourne will be working together with Ariah Park Central School high school students to put on the light show in various locations across Ariah Park.

The Little Projector Company is Australia’s pre-eminent mobile projection specialist. They have presented work at Australia’s biggest light festivals, collaborated with dozens of artists and communities, and pioneered mobile projection arts practice. They will be showcasing historical footage along with art created by the high school students and a collection of short films and more.

From 6pm you'll find the light show projecting onto the long Ariah Park Primary School building (Pitt Street side), the Ariah Park Memorial Hall and the front of  the Ariah Park Hotel. Head over to the beer garden behind the Ariah Park Hotel from 8.30pm where the short films will be played.

In the event of more rain, the light show will be held inside the Ariah Park Memorial Hall.

There will be food available with the Ariah Park Central School P&C Association providing a sausage sizzle, while the Ariah Park Bowling Club, the Ariah Park Hotel and the White Rose Café will also be open to ensure the whole family are well fed. 

This unique event is an exciting one for the community of Ariah Park, and a great excuse for a short drive from nearby towns.
