THE Land Development Agency is throwing a twilight party in Norgrove Park at Kingston Foreshore tomorrow as part of the Canberra International Music Festival.

Performers will include Turkish World Music star Omar Faruk Tekbilek, local Latin rock, reggae and samba band Los Chavos, and jazz band Wanderlust, featuring one of our top trumpeters and composers, Miroslav Bukovsky.

Visitors will be able to view the illuminated eco pond, wander through the wetlands, sample international food, warm up with mulled wine or for the Chai latte set, and enjoy tea, coffee, hot drinks and food in heated areas.

Market stalls will also feature arts and craft from Canberra and the surrounding region.

“The LDA is committed to building vibrant communities with neighbourhood safety and environmental awareness at the forefront,” said David Dawes, the LDA chief executive officer.

He said the event would be powered by green energy and Recycled Greenseats® would be available for seating by the main stage.

“Kingston Foreshore will become an increasingly popular place with both locals and visitors and I encourage Canberrans to take this opportunity to speak with the LDA staff and learn more about the current work and the future vision for the Kingston Foreshore Precinct,” he said.

Twilight party, Kingston Foreshore, Saturday, May 19, 3pm to 6.30pm. For more information visit or call Canberra Connect on 13 22 81.
