Summary

"The periods of 1978-1980 were among the most spectacular years of festivities in the history of the City of Perth. Although many festivities have been a bonding part of Perth for decades, it was this era of dance and entertainment [1978-1980] that stands out as being among the most successful in its history. However, although the “Festival of Perth” and the “Hyde Park Festival” were the traditional annual festivals, something special eventuated in 1979. This was the “Sesqui Centenary” or 150th anniversary of Western Australia and was called WAY 79. Murray Street Perth was also the scene of the spectacular 1979 Christmas Pageant with floats with parade, celebrating WAY 79, including a Skylab float"--Adapted from preface to book.
