For 17 days this July, Prince Alfred Square in Parramatta is set to turn into a frosty winter wonderland. Think carnival rides, mulled wines, cabaret and an ice-skating rink.
If that’s not enough to get your heart pumping, grab a toboggan and race down the Winterlight ice slide. Made of rock-solid ice at 30 metres long, you’ll want to make sure you hit the slopes more than once. Along with this, you’ll also find a merry-go-round and an illuminated Ferris wheel all under a slew of fairy lights.
Themed nights will be happening sporadically here, with winter lantern and shadow screen puppet workshops, circus-trick masterclasses, morphology (interactive LED wires) and cabaret and acrobatics shows.
And if you’re feeling a little peckish, head to any of the food stalls for a feast fit for a beast. These guys have lined up the very best that Sydney has to offer including feeds from Gelato Messina, Blackbear BBQ, Zahara Grill and Waffle Pops.
Grab your tickets for this glowing festival here.
