Check out the crowds which gave Woodgate a heart beat on Sunday:
“WE ARE trying to get this place going – to give it back a heartbeat,” are the words from publican Nathan “Kroppy” Kropp after the successful music festival on Sunday.
Country at the Beach was held for the first time in Woodgate and organisers hope it will become an annual affair.
The Woodgate Beach Hotel came alive with music from Travis Collins, Mickey Pye and Caitlyn Shadbolt.
Mr Kropp said there was a big turnout at the festival with people coming from as far as Brisbane to relax and listen to the country tunes.
“Music is a big part of Wooodgate and we decided to go down the country path which turned out great,” he said.
“We had more than 400 turn up from all surrounding areas including Hervey Bay and Bundaberg.”
He said the atmosphere made the evening event on the long weekend stand out and the country rock songs were the perfect choice.
“It was good to give back to the community, the Woodgate locals and just really good for the town,” Mr Kropp said.
