River of Light 2019
Brightening up the river for Brisbane Festival.
July 10, 2019
Every year, when Brisbane Festival rolls around, two things happen. Firstly, the city explodes with an array of arts, culture and music performances. Secondly, it explodes with colour and light thanks to a big riverside light show.
In 2019, the latter is called River of Light — and if you saw the vivid display last year, you'll want to return for a new luminous combination of awe-inspiring combination of water fountains, lights and lasers. A free 10-minute show taking place at 6.15pm, 8pm and 9pm each night between September 6–28, it's designed to spin another traditional story over Brisbane's brown snake of a waterway. And, to make it happen, Yuggera and Toorbal man Shannon Ruska will once again team up with Oracle Liquid.
Catch it from the Arcadia precinct, on the South Bank Cultural Forecourt, over a few beverages.
