NewsMail - - NEWS -

DE­SPITE the threat of rain loom­ing across the re­gion to­day, the Spirit of Bund­aberg Fes­ti­val is go­ing ahead.

Bund­aberg Rum spokesman Dun­can Lit­tler said it was all sys­tems go for the an­nual event, with plans in place for rainy weather.

“We are def­i­nitely still run­ning our fan­tas­tic event and are well pre­pared for any rain that may come our way,” he said.

“We are keep­ing an eye on the weather and have more than 1000sq m of un­der­cover area avail­able.”

Mr Lit­tler said more than 7000 peo­ple en­joyed the iconic event last year and this year ex­pec­ta­tions were even higher.

“We are ex­pect­ing about 10,000 peo­ple,” he said.

Event-go­ers can ex­pect a full day of en­ter­tain­ment, great-tast­ing rum, new rum releases, tours and de­li­cious food from 10am–5pm.
