Skyfire at Enlighten Festival

Community Event

16 Mar 2019

Hit104.7 Skyfire is lighting up Lake Burley Griffin on Saturday March 16.

There are great vantage points all around the lake with some of Canberra’s favourite food trucks serving up snacks and meals along with the free play Nerf Arena on the Patrick White Lawns. Bring your blanket and radio and tune into the live entertainment from Skyfire Central at Regatta Point with Ned & Josh from 6pm. There will be displays and artillery firing by Australia’s Federation Guard at Gallipoli Reach and for the first time a Royal Australian Navy Taipan helicopter display and low flyover by a RAAF C17 aircraft.

At Hit 104.7 Skyfire Central DJ Lenny Pearce from Justice Crew, and pop sensation Samantha Jade will be performing as the sun disappears and we countdown to Hit 104.7 Skyfire 2019 firing from the pontoons and barges anchored in Lake Burley Griffin. Make sure to crank your radio tuned to Hit 104.7 loud and enjoy the whole Skyfire experience with the firework set to a 20 minute soundtrack. It’s guaranteed to draw Canberra’s Enlighten Festival to a close with a massive bang thanks to the team at Foti International Fireworks and Forch Foti’s famous all out explosive finale.
