29 October 2017
This year marks the 69th festival of the renown Fremantle Blessing of the Fleet! Sunday 29 October is going to be a spectacular day of colour and pageantry finishing with the traditional fireworks display at Fremantle Fishing Boat Harbour.
Starting at 2pm, the parade begins at St Patrick’s Basilica on Adelaide Street, before making its way through the crowd-lined streets to the Fremantle Fishing Boat Harbour where the statues are loaded onto fishing boats and taken around the harbour while a ceremony is performed to bless the fleet for the coming fishing season. The parade then returns to St Patrick’s around 4pm.
A spectacular fireworks display will be held at 8pm at the Fremantle Fishing Boat Harbour.
