Even the looming threat of rain couldn’t dampen spirits at the City of Kwinana’s Positive Vibes Youth Festival on Saturday.

The alcohol, drug and smoke-free event was hosted at the Edge Skatepark where about 1000 13-19 year olds from the local area turned out for the City’s biggest event for teens.

The event had activities such as glitter art, photo booths, food trucks and skateboarding demonstrations on offer, ensuring there was something for everyone.
