Along with the carnival at Alexandra Gardens, a ‘Love Melbourne, Love Moomba’ theme will be displayed at some of Melbourne’s most iconic locations.
Significant buildings will be lit up in red to encourage everyone to show their love for Melbourne, while large floral love heart displays will pop up at Melbourne Town Hall, Bourke Street Mall, the State Library of Victoria and more locations.
The festival will also show its love for Melbourne with a light installation of a gigantic beating heart placed before the city’s skyline along the banks of the Yarra on the Upper Terrace of Birrarung Marr.
Other activity around town during Moomba Long Weekend includes a busking competition in the city where the winner will receive a ‘golden ticket’ to Melbourne’s best events.
There will be pop-up music performances and street art installations around the city.
