On 6 November, groups of guests all dressed in white will gather at specific meeting points across Perth.

Over the course of the evening, thousands of chic picnic-goers will eat and celebrate amid music, entertainment and dancing. There are eye-catching selfie opportunities and breathtaking moments including the traditional group waving of a white cloth napkin at sunset (to mark dinner) and the lighting of thousands of sparklers (to initiate dancing and mingling). When the trumpet sounds, guests pack up all of their belongings and depart, leaving behind no sign of their elegant revelry.
