The first-ever Singleton Firelight has been proclaimed an overwhelming success, as up to 1,500 people gathered on the Civic Centre lawn for a blistering evening of entertainment.
Dance and theatrics from the Utopian Fire dancers lit up the night, with live music to keep toes tapping and food, wine and craft beer from local wineries and breweries to warm the stomach in Singleton Council’s homage to autumn.
Council is also supporting Smoke in Broke, a two-day food festival at McNamara Park on 9-10 June.
“There’s been an enormous amount of feedback from people asking for more twilight events in Singleton,” Mr Linnane said.
“We are already looking towards our Australia Day festivities to include the traditional civic ceremony as well as a sunset program of entertainment.
“A new flagship event for Singleton to build on the natural assets of our local government area and attract visitors to our part of the world is also underway, so watch this space.”
