CHILDERS FESTIVAL CELEBRATING 20 YEARS
THE Childers Festival will celebrate 20 years of festivities in 2015 and the town will become a symphony of food, colour and culture.
Bundaberg Regional Council community services spokeswoman Judy Peters said this year’s event, held from Friday, July 24 to Sunday, July 26 was set to be nothing short of spectacular.
“We’re kicking off the festival on the Friday with some events that aim to celebrate the best of Childers including an Isis Central Sugar Mill Coach tour, a Pilotlight Production musical or a Hill of Promise Winery Dinner,” Cr Peters said.
“The focus on everything local continues on Saturday morning with Arts in the Park and guided tours of Childers by coach or foot.
“The main stage will kick into action from 2pm going through until 10pm, while the Paragon Theatre will screen the Italian classic Cinema Paradiso from 7pm.
“As per tradition the main festival day will be held on the Sunday and Bruce Hwy traffic will be redirected to make way for hundreds of food and market stalls and five entertainment stages which will feature a jam-packed multicultural line-up throughout the day.”
Cr Peters said the entertainment line-up for the street party on Saturday and the main festival day would be bigger and better than ever.
“We’ve got an impressive list of entertainers attending this year’s festival including some old favourites and plenty of new acts.”
