Party fever hits Port Douglas
IT’S T-minus 24 hours until the Carnivale festivities begin and the town is buzzing.
The new and improved Carnivale brings with it a line-up of exciting shows, social gatherings and shoe tapping bands.
This year’s event, geared around the novel Wonderland Spiegeltent at Dixie Park down by the Inlet, will be set off by the Paradise on a Plate Longest Lunch tomorrow (Friday, May 20).
Celebrating local produce, four courses will be served under the skilled hand of Port Douglas Catering & Events executive chef co-owner Tommy Young.
After lunch all the action can be found in town with the street parade festivities kicking off in Market Park from 5pm.
The street parade itself will start just after at 6.30pm.
The first night finishes off with a bang with 9pm fireworks.
Saturday brings some good old fashioned fun at the Family Beach Day on Four Mile Beach.
Parents that aren’t too exhausted by the day at the beach can head down to Port on a Fork, Food, Music & Wine showcase on Saturday night.
The Fishermen’s Village Seafood Music Festival from 11am, Sunday will wrap up the three-day weekend.
Then it will just be another year until we can do it all over again!
Knockout Events director Melissa Head said this year’s huge program was designed to showcase the region’s local produce, local artists, musicians and world class performers.
“We have a range of ticketed and free events for all ages. Come party in paradise,” she said.
