Federal election won't stop Picton's Illuminate Festival 2019

Not even the Prime Minister will dim the shine of this year's Illuminate Festival.

Scott Morrison decided to get into the festival spirit and called the federal election for the same day as Picton's Illuminate - Saturday, May 18.

However acting chief executive Michael Malone said the festival of art and light would be going ahead in as planned.

He said preparations were full swing for the highlight of Wollondilly's event calendar.

"The Australian Electoral Commission (AEC) has not been in contact with council yet regarding the location of voting venues in the shire," he said.

"We will be liaising with the AEC in regard to this and will update the community as things develop.

"We hope that after everyone has been out to vote they will head down to Menangle Street for Illuminate."

The reinvigorated Illuminate Wollondilly 2019 - which is now in its fifth year - is set to delight attendees like never before.

There will be exciting new activities for the whole family and even more awe-inspiring lighting projections.

This year there will be several new additions including more illuminated buildings, LED dancers, street performers, a DJ activation truck, a silent disco and neon putt-putt.

Festival favourites, the Lieder theatre fire dancers, Jasmine Brophy the Fire Breather, market and food stalls and The Mac Kids carnival will also be back to thrill attendees.

The entertainment line up on the Bradcorp Music festival stage features two local country music stars, Missy Lancaster and Jemma Beech, who will be joined by Luke Koteras.

The stage and performing arts area will also welcome a number of dance schools, school performance groups and more.

Families can also enjoy a spectacular firework show from 9pm.

Illuminate Wollondilly is a free event and will run from noon to 9pm.

:ocal artworks will be displayed in Picton Shire Hall alongside a selection of artisan market stalls in the three days leading up to the event.

A road closure is scheduled for Menangle Street, Picton between Colden and Argyle Streets from 6am to midnight on the day of the festival.

St Mary McKillop Lane and the rear car park to Argyle Street will also be closed.
