Brunch and brass combine
THE Woodgate Community Events Inc has initiated something new for this year’s Brunch and Brass at the Park.
To celebrate the Woodgate RSL’s new memorial, event organisers have dedicated the event to the contribution from the local service people.
The Brunch and Brass is on Sunday morning in the park beside the Woodgate Community Hall from 9.30am until noon, with a free concert.
Clem Soppa will lead the performance with local band Clem and Co.
Born and bred in Bundaberg, Clem has always been interested and active in music.
Jazz music has played a particular role after he did his classical music training with the saxophone.
Josh Nurse, of Woodgate Community Events, said Woodgate was the region’s best kept secret and this event was a great way to recognise the local service people and showcase the best the region had to offer.
“Waking up to breakfast with the best beach views and our local residents, the kangaroos, is pretty hard to top,” he said.
Woodgate Arts in Spring starts on Friday, with champagne at the official opening of the ArtPlus Woodgate Art Exhibition from 6pm.
After soaking in the beauty of Woodgate in the morning, Saturday afternoon is set for the free Concert in the Park featuring the Intercity Jazz Band.
After the Brunch and Brass event on Sunday, round off the massive weekend by visiting the markets that stop the Esplanade.
The free Family Market Day features more than 150 stalls, opening from 7.30am.
At the markets you will find plenty of goodies to remind you of your weekend at Woodgate Beach.
Woodgate Beach is just a 35-minute drive from Bundaberg and a great place for a long weekend.
