A Winter Winner

Friday night 21st June 2024, saw over 5000 guests descend on Seaworks for the Winter Solstice Festival 2024.

The festivities began with the haunting sound of bagpipes, leading the growing crowd past the amazing boat displays and into a world of winter fun. The scene was set with the giant puppets from A Blanck Canvas wandering among the guests. And, who doesn’t love the Giant Seagulls, it screamed “THIS IS WILLIAMSTOWN!”

Carnival rides and The Sway performers amazed and entertained, creating a lively atmosphere that wowed the crowd. The soulful Motown tunes from Sweethearts provided the perfect backdrop.

A heartfelt thank you goes out to everyone who helped make the Seaworks Winter Solstice Festival a resounding success. From the dedicated volunteers to the hardworking staff, everyone went above and beyond to ensure that the night was magical and memorable for all who attended. Your efforts and enthusiasm did not go unnoticed and were instrumental in creating a seamless and enjoyable experience.

The Winter Solstice Festival 2024 was a night to remember, bringing the community together to celebrate Seaworks in a unique and wonderful way. Plus it was the perfect way to kick off the Winter in Williamstown festival which starts this Friday 28th June 2024

Thank you once again to everyone who contributed to this fantastic event.
