Illumination Parade 2014

Don't miss the amazing walking spectacle as we celebrate a symbolic whale migration from Freedom Park to Nala at the Discovery Centre. Glowing, shining, beaming and sparkling for a cause as the night darkens, the Hervey Bay community come together annually for the much loved Illumination Parade; uniting local business, cultural and sporting organisations, charities, schools, youth groups and families as they light up the sky with colourful, amazing and sometimes crazy creations. 

The extravaganza shimmers as it weaves along a trail that represents the migration of the famed Humpback Whales that return to the Bay’s pristine shores to rest and play. It attracts thousands of spectators to cheer the entrants as they vie for fantastic festival prizes.

The theme of this year’s Parade is ‘Mystery of the Oceans – LEGENDS UNDER THE SEA’. The parade commences 18th October at 6:00 pm and the last entrants should have reached Nala in all her breaching glory by 7:00 pm.
