Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - THE GROOVE - Moya Stevens

AF­TER a year’s absence, the Port Dou­glas Seafood Extravaganza is re­turn­ing with gusto at the Reef Ma­rina, hosted by Hem­ing­way’s, co­in­cid­ing with the brew­ery’s first birth­day.

To be held on Sun­day 9 July, the Seafood Extravaganza will fea­ture seafood, beers, wines, mu­sic and lots of fam­ily fun.

Ac­cord­ing to Mr Chris Bar­ber from Hem­ing­way’s, the event will in­clude Melville’s Pet­ting Zoo, face paint­ing, Hart­ley’s Rep­tile show and the Port Dou­glas Fire Bri­gade will be bring­ing one of their big rigs to the event.

“We are team­ing up with Lure Restau­rant and Bar and Barbados so the en­tire Ma­rina will be in­volved,” Chris said, “and there will be 10 food ven­dors and mu­sic on the grassed area next to the in­let.”

“There will be so much seafood, you won’t know what to do with your­self,” he said.

The event is free, start­ing at 12 noon and con­tin­u­ing un­til 7pm.

“The mu­sic line up is amaz­ing with the Kroovs, Shan­non Hunter, The Mont­gomery Broth­ers and Sun Sa­lute keep­ing the party go­ing,” Chris said.

“We are us­ing the event to also cel­e­brate Hem­ing­way’s first birth­day, and as a thank you to all who have sup­ported us,” he said.

“This event has been very missed by lo­cals and visi­tors, so it is ex­cit­ing that we are bring­ing it back,” Chris said, “and what bet­ter way to en­joy a free, fam­ily-friendly day, watch­ing the sun­set from the ma­rina, groov­ing to some live mu­sic.”

“Of course the main fea­ture will be the seafood – cou­pled with great beer and spe­cially se­lected wines for the day,” Chris said.

The en­tire board­walk of the ma­rina will be cel­e­brat­ing the ‘fruits of the sea’ and full de­tails of the event and line-up of food ven­dors will be in the

prior to July 9.
