Micks will head­line com­mu­nity car­ni­val

Whitsunday Times - - CHILL -

COUN­TRY singer Michaela Cook re­cently re­leased a song to give hope to the peo­ple of the Whit­sun­days as they strug­gled with a marathon re­cov­ery af­ter Cy­clone Deb­bie.

And now, she’s re­turn­ing to the re­gion to en­ter­tain and in­spire hun­dreds of lo­cals run­ning the Air­lie Beach Triathlon.

Bris­bane-based Michaela, or Micks as she is known, said she was hop­ing to re­con­nect with “ev­ery­one who I met the first time”.

Her new sin­gle ‘Ev­ery­thing Will Be Al­right’ was es­pe­cially writ­ten for the cy­clone-dev­as­tated re­gion and has al­ready re­ceived more than 250,000 hits on Face­book and YouTube.

Next month, she will head­line the Fri­day night en­ter­tain­ment at the Air­lie Beach Triathlon Com­mu­nity Car­ni­val with a “fun, up­beat” acous­tic set that will fea­ture her new song.

Air­lie Beach Triathlon Com­mu­nity Car­ni­val or­gan­iser Stephen Jack­son said this was the first time the triathlon, now in its 19th year, had been or­gan­ised with car­ni­val-re­lated events.

“We want to show­case the area,” he said. “The event is a not-for-profit race, giv­ing peo­ple a chance to do the triathlon while at the same time show­ing off Air­lie Beach as a beau­ti­ful spot to do it.”

The car­ni­val at­mos­phere will kick off on Fri­day, Septem­ber 1, with Micks play­ing at 5.45pm and 7.20pm, fire­works at 7.55pm and food trucks, live mu­sic, jump­ing cas­tle and a me­chan­i­cal bull as part of the fes­tiv­i­ties from 5pm-8pm. All en­ter­tain­ment is based on a gold coin do­na­tion for Ron­ald McDon­ald House. Triathlon reg­is­tra­tion is at www. whit­sun­day tri­club.com.
