An unforgettable Adelaide tradition not to be missed! As dusk falls experience a kaleidoscopic collision of colour, light and music and welcome the thousands of Fringe artists here to entertain us. Bring along a blanket or a low chair and grab a spot. Be amazing as breathtaking Kaurna fire sculptures light up this magical night followed by The Sirens, seven colossal divas enticing you to experience their enchanting worlds of cabaret, circus, comedy, dance, music, theatre and visual art. As they glide past, you will be entranced by their dazzling dresses of a thousand sparkling lights.
