Picton lights up for Illuminate Wollondilly 2019: pictures

Illuminate Wollondilly was bigger and brighter than ever on Saturday.

The festival lit up Picton on May 18 and attracted thousands of visitors throughout the day and night.

Historic buildings on Menangle Street and St Mary McKillop Lane featured brilliant light projections, while light portraits of some of the shire's most senior citizens were displayed on an evergreen tree.

Wollondilly mayor Matthew Deeth said he was pleased with this year's turn-out.

"This is a fantastic event for Wollondilly and shows just how much our community, towns and villages have to offer," he said.

"The collaboration and teamwork of volunteers, local businesses, community groups and sponsors has once again done our community proud.

"I would like to thank all our partner sponsors for their contribution and all the staff from Wollondilly Council who worked tirelessly to bring this event together."

Other highlights of the festival this year included a Waste to Art competition and exhibition (featuring artworks made of recycled materials), a silent disco, neon putt putt golf, a kids carnival, live performances (including Missy Lancaster) and a spectacular fireworks display at 9pm.
