People will be “wowed” by the creativity of Geraldine residents at the coming Wearable Lights event, its organiser says.
Event organiser Merran Blake said those attending the event at the Geraldine Cinema on August 11 should expect some “pretty cool” designs, especially as the light creations would be seen in the dark.
The event was supposed to have been held on the same night as the Winter Lights festival a fortnight ago, but it was postponed due to timing technicalities, she said.
She hoped the evening would attract from 30 to 40 entrants.
People were still able to enter until Friday night and they could register by contacting her, she said.
The doors would open at 5.30pm and the show would begin at 6pm.
She expected the event would go for two hours at the most.
“It’s going to be very exciting.”
With six different categories including under-12 full costume, 13-17 full costume and over-18 full costume, as well as a wearable hat, lantern or bag and a team entry divisions, there were plenty of possibilities for those wanting to enter, she said.
It would also showcase the wide range of talent in the Geraldine community, she said.
“Prepare to be wowed by people’s creations.”
