The Morning Bulletin - - NEWS -

THOU­SANDS are ex­pected to flock to Yep­poon this week­end to cel­e­brate one of the big­gest events on the Capricorn Coast so­cial cal­en­dar.

Yep­poon Lions Trop­i­cal Pine­fest com­mit­tee is in full swing to bring a smor­gas­bord of ex­it­ing events to­day and to­mor­row.

Be­ing the 50th an­niver­sary of the Lions Pine­fest, it will be a cel­e­bra­tion of the Golden Mo­ments and Yep­poon Lions are bring­ing their best and bright­est to liven up the Capricorn Coast.

Pine­fest chair­per­son Lou Ship­way said this year’s line-up has had a shake up all in the name of bring­ing the most en­ter­tain­ment value to the pop­u­lar Capricorn Coast Fes­ti­val.

Last­night the Pine­fest Ball was held un­der the stars at Trop­i­cal Pines in Yep­poon where the Pine­fest Am­bas­sador and Char­ity Am­bas­sador were crowned.

To­day, Triple M’s B team will broad­cast live on the fore­shore from 8am to 10am.

There will be a Pine­fest High Tea event held at Keppel Bay Sail­ing Club from 2pm, a fam­ily movie night in Yep­poon and KBSC Dis­cover Sail­ing from 8am to 10am.

Sun­day thou­sands of peo­ple will line the streets for the Coal Train Grand Street Pa­rade from 10.30am.

The pa­rade will be pre­ceded by a foot race and the Run­ning of the Bulls which will pro­vide fam­i­lies with a whole new level of en­ter­tain­ment.

At 11.15am, the JRT stage show on the fore­shore will kick off for a great line-up of fam­ily en­ter­tain­ment cul­mi­nat­ing with ev­ery­one’s favourite, the Keppel Bay Sail­ing Club Mon­ster Fire­works at 7.30pm.
