ONLY nine more sleeps be­fore Childers sets the stage for its an­nual Mul­ti­cul­tural Fes­ti­val.

This year’s fes­ti­val, the 20th to be held will be rea­son to celebrate.

The traf­fic will again be di­verted and Churchill St will be given over to the street ven­dors, en­ter­tain­ment and fes­ti­val pa­trons.

The Childers fes­ti­val, in re­cent years had at­tracted crowds in ex­cess of 40,000.

“There is free park­ing at the Childers Show­ground and park­ing for dis­abled.

“Park­ing per­mit hold­ers avail­able on the cor­ner of Cres­cent and Lord streets,” Cr Peters said.

Childers will again host an iconic fes­ti­val, gain­ing at­ten­tion and in­ter­est from across the state.

With more en­ter­tain­ment, more food and more peo­ple, the town­ship of Childers will be the place to be.

Cr Peters said fes­ti­val-go­ers should also be aware that, apart from reg­is­tered guide dogs, this was a “no-dog” event.

“Wide Bay An­i­mal Res­cue will be on­site at the Childers Show­ground on Sun­day, July 26 of­fer­ing a dog-mind­ing ser­vice.

“This ser­vice will be avail­able be­tween 9am to 3.30pm at a cost of $10 per dog.

Your dog will have a shaded area, wa­ter, ex­er­cise and com­pan­ion­ship, with funds raised go­ing to Wide Bay An­i­mal Res­cue.”

The busi­ness own­ers on Churchill St have got into the spirit and dec­o­rated shop win­dows.

One lucky shop owner will win the best dressed win­dow. Who will it be?

This year will be big­ger and bet­ter than the last.

New to the fes­ti­val are two Her­itage Tours and will take place on Satur­day, July 25.

Also new, and well worth see­ing is the Isis Cen­tral Sugar Mill and Cane Fire Tour.

The Childers Fes­ti­val starts Satur­day, July 25 and con­cludes Sun­day.
