Canterbury-Bankstown’s Youth Week is set to finish in spectacular fashion, with the Spark Fest at Paul Keating Park on Friday 20 April (3-8pm).

The glow-in-the-dark music festival promises to be an evening filled with exciting live entertainment, including:

  • Vocal performances by students in the Canterbury-Bankstown Talent Advancement Program (TAP);
  • Dance showcases by WSS Dance Studio and JASKA Performing Arts;
  • Cultural performances, including a traditional Tongan dance by the Unstoppable Church in Wiley Park; and
  • Fire performances by local youth group Dauntless Movement Crew.

There will also be a number of stalls and activities for people of all ages to enjoy, including:

  • Airbrush and henna tattooing;
  • Glow-in-the-dark body painting;
  • T-shirt making;
  • Rides;
  • Rock climbing;
  • Spartan games;
  • Bubble soccer;
  • Lantern making; and
  • A graffiti wall.

WSS Dance Studio Principal, Carmel Kempe, said she’s excited to present 12 dancers in a junior tap solo and a junior and primary jazz routine.

"This event is so important in giving our youth the confidence to really aim for the stars," the Bass Hill resident said.

"I can’t wait to showcase how dance provides freedom of expression, good healthy exercise and a real sense of achievement."

Mayor Khal Asfour said Spark Fest will provide an afternoon and evening of fun-filled activities.

"There’s an exciting vibe in the community, particularly on social media, and a real sense of anticipation as the event draws near," Mayor Asfour said.

"I encourage local youth who attend Spark Fest to also use the opportunity to pop into the Bankstown Library and Knowledge Centre, especially if they have never been inside before. There’s always a lot to see and do."
