Foodie feast hit with fam­i­lies

The Cairns Post - - NEWS - AN­DREA FALVO

AN EVENT that brings to­gether Cairns’ best food ven­dors and entertainment is show­ing no sign of slow­ing down.

Cairns on a Fork re­turned to West Bar­low Park on Satur­day for “Bat­tle Of The Fork”.

With up to 3000 peo­ple at­tend­ing through­out the af­ter­noon and evening, or­gan­iser Shaun Ram­sey said it was Cairns on a Fork’s third stand­alone event so far this year.

“We’ve brought it back to West Bar­low be­cause I think this has been one of the bet­ter re­ceived lo­ca­tions that we’ve had,” he said.

“Next month, we’re out to Bent­ley Park Col­lege for their fete and then one in Novem­ber and hope­fully a Christ­mas event. It just de­pends on how much the Cairns peo­ple want it, I think.

“If we see crowds start to de­cline then we’ll pull it back a lit­tle bit, but right now there’s a few pop­ping up try­ing to do what we do and I think we’re all unique in our own way.”

Mr Ram­sey said with most dishes un­der $12, it was an af­ford­able night out for fam­i­lies, who were the tar­get au­di­ence.

“One of the best things about it is see­ing peo­ple to­gether,” he said.
