Regional bands hit the stage for shindig
CHARLEVILLE are gearing up for one of its biggest nights of the year this Friday – the Halfway There Shindig.
This year, organisers have emphasised on showcasing local talent and have two extraordinary bands coming to rock the stage, Solar Flare and Ned and the Kellys.
Murweh Shire tourism co-ordinator Monique Johnson said this year there are some changes to the venue and some exciting aspects expected.
“This year we have moved the Halfway There Shindig back to the main street because last year we found the racecourse was a little bit colder than we had anticipated, and secondly this venue involves the local businesses, giving them the opportunity to stay open,” Ms Johnson said.
“This year the concert will be in the heart of Wills Street, with the main stage opposite NAB.
“For entertainment we have the Charleville State High School rock band, Solar Flare performing from 5.15pm for the first set.”
FESTIVITIES: Local band Ned and the Kellys will perform.
