The Positive Vibes Youth Festival, the biggest event for teens in the City of Kwinana and surrounding areas in 2018, was held on Saturday, 13 October, despite threatening rain looming the morning of the event.

The alcohol-, drug- and smoke-free event was hosted at the Edge Skatepark and accommodated around a thousand 13-19 year olds from the local area.

The event had all types of activities on offer – from glitter art to photo booths, food trucks to skateboarding demonstrations – there was literally something for everyone.

This included DJ sets, a live set from up-and-coming Perth artist Young Jaycee, competitions, coaching clinics, basketball competitions and a host of other activities.

The whole day was emceed by MC Trooth, and local member and Deputy Premier Roger Cook dropped by to d​onate a terrific prize of Perth Wildcats tickets.

As well as various activities and action-packed fun, the festival also featured a 'chill out zone' run by the Zone Youth Space for young people to escape the crowds.

Mayor Carol Adams said the event was a huge success.

"It's so great to see our young people showing off their skills, enjoying time together or taking in a live act," she said.

"These types of events are what make Kwinana a great place to live and visit".​
