The LiveLighter Canning Show is set to return next weekend at its home in the grounds of the Cannington Exhibition Centre and Showgrounds from Friday, November 6 to Saturday, November 7. The buzz around this year’s show is palpable after a lean year in community events, with first release tickets quickly selling out. Now to elevate the excitement even more, the full program has now been unveiled, and it truly is living up to its claim of being “a playground of all ages.”
The program is packed with hundreds of free things to do and thousands of free things to see. With laser tag, pony unicorn rides, face-painting, freestyle motorbike ramp shows, mini-golf, wood chopping comps, cute animals, award-winning bands and exhibitions to inspire, there’s something for everyone. There are big thrills and rides in the Sideshow Wonderland, along with showbags, Food World, Grand Parade Markets, two nights of fireworks, fire acrobatics and more.
In a year when COVID-19 decimated agricultural shows across Australia, including the Perth Royal Show, the LiveLighter Canning Show will be one of the very first major metropolitan shows in Australia to go ahead, bringing much-needed joy and inspiration to thousands. The show’s COVID Safe Events Plan was one of the first to be approved by the WA Department of Health, with organisers demonstrating they were as committed to safety as they were to creativity, education, unique experiences and fun for all ages.
The public is reminded that the LiveLighter Canning Show will look a little different in 2020, happening over three sessions across the Friday (5pm-10pm) and Saturday (9am-4pm and 5pm-10pm) to comply with limited capacity restrictions. There will also be no door sales with all tickets now being sold via Eventbrite. Early Bird and first release tickets are now sold out, leaving a last chance to save with second release tickets also running hot.
While each session will have its own unique highlights, each of them are guaranteed plenty of fun entertainment including:
