Throw on your winter coat and head out into the night as the Glow Winter Arts Festival returns to Melbourne's southeast for its sixth year. Hosted by the City of Stonnington over four chilly nights, this after-dark arts fest celebrates the best that local creatives have to offer, with plenty of dazzling light projections to tempt you out into the cold.

This year, Malvern East's Central Park oval set to be lit up with lasers, projections and giant glowing puppets — it's the east's answer to Fitzroy's Gertrude Street Projection Festival and Footscray's West Projections.

If you rock up to the park between 6pm and 10pm, you'll be able to wander through a maze of lights and glowing installations. Step inside a dome of glowing lights in Wonderdome, visit a five-metre-tall puppet made from 600 LED lights and more than one-kilometre of rope or stop by The Indirect Object's Minor Disturbance, which is made from recycled plastics and will make you feel as though you're floating beneath the ocean. Best of all? It's all free to attend.

While you're there, you'll also find cheesy toasties and hot chocolates to warm up your hands (and stomach).

Glow Winter Arts Festival runs from 6–10pm.
