Central and North Burnett Times - - TASTE OF THE BURNETT -

THE TASTE of the Bur­nett – Cel­e­bra­tion of Cul­ture, mul­ti­cul­tural fes­ti­val will burst into life on Satur­day at the Mun­dub­bera Show­grounds.

It fea­tures a di­verse range of food and wines from through­out the Bur­nett re­gion and a broad range of stalls sell­ing re­gional mer­chan­dise.

There will also be a cook­ing com­pe­ti­tion and a Mun­dub­bera Mar­vel­lous Marmalade com­pe­ti­tion to pro­mote the cit­rus in­dus­try of the lo­cal re­gion.

The en­ter­tain­ment on stage will fea­ture a wide va­ri­ety of en­ter­tain­ers rang­ing from lo­cal groups to the Her­vey Bay RSL Pipe band, Scot­tish dancers from Bris­bane, the Flam­ing Sands Belly Dancers from Her­vey Bay and Philip­pino Dancers, also hail­ing from Her­vey Bay.

There will be an in­ter­est­ing com­edy per­for­mance by a well-known per­former from the Sun­shine Coast and per­for­mance and clown­ing work­shop by Ty­ronne.

There will be so much for the younger mem­bers of the re­gion to do with Bund­aberg Rides bring­ing a wall to climb.

There will be a worm to ex­plore and you can chal­lenge yourself with the gla­di­a­tors.

Add to that camel rides, a jump­ing cas­tle, a merry-go-round and a train and ev­ery­one is en­ter­tained.

A new at­trac­tion this year will be Matty G, chain saw carver.

Matty G’s skill with the chainsaw will keep ev­ery­one guess­ing as he ex­pertly works his way to cre­ate an­other mas­ter­piece for a log.

In the pavil­ion there will be in­for­ma­tion dis­plays by Hcouman Ser­vices providers, pro­vid­ing in­for­ma­tion on a broad range of health and well­be­ing pro­grams.

All this ac­tiv­ity will en­sure you have a good ap­petite to sam­ple the de­lights on sale by the food stall hold­ers.

The en­ter­tain­ment continues into the evening with live mu­sic by Bruce McGil­veray.

Hot food from the stalls will be avail­able.

En­try to the fes­ti­val will be $5 for adults and chil­dren un­der 15 years will be al­lowed in for free.

Ad­mis­sion to the evening show is free af­ter 4pm.

Mark this event down as one not to be missed as there is some­thing for ev­ery­one, come along, bring some friends and en­joy the Tastes of the Bur­nett.
