Castlemaine Blue Light Disco president Jo Willen, Castlemaine's Sgt Peter Lukaitis, and Chewton's Marcel Pflieger, 8, are among the many looking forward to this Friday's return of the popular Blue Light dance party.

Castlemaine Blue Light Disco returns with a splash at Chewton Swimming Pool this Friday.

For youngsters aged anywhere up to 13 - or a tad older - it's time to crack out the latest party tracks pitch in a bit of Nutbush City Limits for good measure - and brush up on your best disco moves.

Local Blue Light mover and shaker, Castlemaine's Sergeant Peter Lukaitis says this Friday's pool party launch of the much-loved event marks its return after a year-long recess.

With new committee members having signed on, the reinvigorated committee is now planning at least eight Blue Lights ahead for the year - a move sure to please the long running event's legion of young fans.

"A lot of kids have been wondering when we were going to start again," Sgt Lukaitis said.

"After this Friday's return at the Chewton Pool we'll go back to eight events a year at the Theatre Royal, generally on the first Friday of the month, except for school holidays."

This Friday's fully supervised - and lifeguard monitored - pool party Blue Light happens from 4-7pm.

It comes complete with barbecue provided by the Chewton CFA, jumping castle, and plenty of water games and prizes to be won as well as the main attraction - the disco itself.

"We have a dance competition which the kids love and they practice for," Castlemaine Blue Light Disco president Jo Willen said.

"We've been out for 12 months and over that time we've had people ringing up saying 'we want to keep the Blue Light'.

"A main reason we want it back is because we want the kids to mingle with police so they get to see they're good gals and guys."

Blue Light is not-for-profit and Sgt Lukaitis says the $6 entry charge goes to various local good causes as well running the discos which Jo says enjoy strong support from local businesses.

"We're expected to get 300 to 400 people," she says.
