Earth Hour to switch off the lights in Port

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS - Madi­son Wil­liams

QT Port Dou­glas will switch off for one hour this Satur­day for Earth Hour to show their sup­port for the “Places We Love”.

But don’t worry if you’re afraid of the dark, Estilo will be aglow with can­dle­light to keep away the mon­sters in the dark.

Lo­cal tal­ent Katie Jay will be test­ing her tal­ent and per­form­ing un­plugged, with only the can­dle­light to add to the am­bi­ence.

Earth Hour aims to high­light that the cel­e­brated out­door life­style of Aus­tralia is un­der threat from ris­ing tem­per­a­tures and ex­treme weather changes caused by car­bon pol­lu­tion. Earth Hour 2016 asks the na­tion to switch off to pro­tect the “Places We Love”. “The Great Bar­rier Reef and the Rain­for­est are our back­yard and we love them, other peo­ple around the world also love them, so to make sure we keep them pro­tected and safe we’re rais­ing aware­ness,” said Sharon Timms, QT Port Dou­glas PR and Events Co­or­di­na­tor.

The event kicks off at 7pm and is of­fer­ing a $10 wood­fired pizza menu and $5 draft beers. QT will be plunged into dark­ness be­tween 8:30pm and 9:30pm. Estilo at QT will also be the un­of­fi­cial post-party venue for the coun­cil elec­tions on Satur­day.
