Chilled-out end to red-hot fes­ti­val

Pilbara News - - Lifestyle - Court­ney Fowler

■ Red Earth Arts Fes­ti­val wrapped up in Cat­trall Park ear­lier this month with a chilled sun­downer at REAF Re­cov­ery.

Res­i­dents were treated to the tunes of a va­ri­ety of lo­cal mu­si­cians, stalls, food vans and a se­ries of short Pixar films which proved a hit with lo­cal fam­i­lies.

City of Kar­ratha Mayor Peter Long said REAF pro­vided the com­mu­nity with 10 days of high qual­ity events serv­ing to fur­ther en­hance the arts and cul­ture ex­pe­ri­ence in the re­gion.

Other REAF events on of­fer through­out last week in­cluded an im­mer­sive theatre show called Faulty Tow­ers: The Din­ing Ex­pe­ri­ence, a per­for­mance by the Gond­wana Na­tional In­dige­nous Chil­dren’s Choir, a dance per­for­mance with lo­cal and pro­fes­sional dancers and a youth event.

Owner of lo­cal events com­pany Wrapped Cre­ations David Yakas said events like REAF brought about great op­por­tu­ni­ties for lo­cal busi­nesses.

“We were so happy to be so in­volved this year from cater­ing and bar man­age­ment to event fit-outs and event co-or­di­na­tion,” he said.

“We were able to get com­pletely in­volved in this year’s fes­ti­val and look for­ward to do­ing it all again next year.”
