Party fever hits Port Dou­glas

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS - Madi­son Wil­liams

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.
