Illuminate Raymond Terrace 2024

It's still on! Don't let a little rain stop you! Grab your gumboots, ponchos and umbrellas and get ready for an unforgettable night.

From 4pm to 9pm, we’re brightening up Raymond Terrace with a family friendly event at Riverside Park, King Street, and Hunter Street. Illuminate will bring families, residents together with a focus on inclusion, culture, diversity and belonging!

We'll have a lantern making workshop, followed by a community parade, while fire flames lining the pathway along the iconic river will lead you through an array of attractions such as:

Make sure you don't miss the spectacular display of fireworks which will take place over the Hunter River at 8pm!

This event is made possible thanks to funding from the NSW Government, and our local sponsors MarketPlace Raymond Terrace, Raymond Terrace Therapy, The Mutual Bank, and Mortgage Choice.
