Spree of fun and fireworks
Port Hedland Turf Club was a hive of activity last weekend as thousands of people turned up to enjoy the Town of Port Hedland’s version of a regional royal show.
The Spinifex Spree is an annual carnival-style event held over two days, offering punters an array of entertainment.
This year’s star attractions included show bag stalls, bumper cars, stilt-walkers, Old Macdonald’s Travelling Farm, amusement rides, live entertainment and more than 80 market stalls selling everything from food to hand-crafted goods.
SAFE Hedland, Care for Hedland, South Hedland Police, and Port Hedland Netball Association were among the local exhibitors.
“These events can’t go ahead without dedicated people and the staff at the Town of Port Hedland who help put everything together.”
Local musician Mikey Smith performed on both days and indie rock band VANNS took to the stage on Saturday night to ring in the end of the event, followed by a fireworks display.
