Por­to­ber­fest to trans­form marina

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - GROOVE - by DONNA-MARIE MILNE

POR­TO­BER­FEST is set to bring a lit­tle bit of Bavaria to Port Dou­glas next week­end with a smor­gas­bord of world beers, danc­ing frauleins, bratwursts and steins fill­ing the Port Dou­glas marina board­walk.

More than 1000 rev­ellers are expected to pack out the iconic marina board­walk, with or­gan­iser Wayne Sta­ple­ton promis­ing to de­liver the most en­ter­tain­ing Por­to­ber­fest yet.

“I wanted to take Por­to­ber­fest to a whole dif­fer­ent per­spec­tive, bring it to a whole new level,” the Lure restau­ra­teur said.

“It’s go­ing to be huge this year, we an­tic­i­pate record crowds, as peo­ple come to taste the beers, en­joy the food, mu­sic and en­ter­tain­ment.”

Beer en­thu­si­asts will have the choice of 30 in­ter­na­tional beers to sam­ple, among the eight dif­fer­ent in­ter­na­tional beer tents, and tres­sel tables will line the board­walk, to recre­ate the feel of a beer hall.

Dy­namic four-piece band Hip2­soul will en­ter­tain the crowds with their own brand of soul/funk/rock, and the Por­to­ber­fest danc­ing girls will be tak­ing to the stage throughout the day with tra­di­tional dances, in­clud­ing the well-loved cus­tom­ary slap­dance.

The free event will be held on Satur­day, Oc­to­ber 27, from 2pm-9pm.

For ex­tra in­dul­gence VIP passes are avail­able, priced at $150 each or four tick­ets for the price of three, al­low­ing ac­cess to the VIP area cov­er­ing the price all food and drink, a sou­venir stein, and ser­vice by the Por­to­ber­fest wait­resses. Pur­chase must be made be­fore the event.
