What better way to celebrate Grandparents’ Day, than by enjoying a Music in the Park event at Arana Hills?
The event on October 30, from 11am-4pm, will feature performances by musicians from the area, giving locals the chance to enjoy local talent in a relaxed setting at Leslie Patrick Park.
The line-up includes Amy Kate, Josh Crawford, Peter Muldoon and more to be announced soon.
There will be food trucks on hand, as well as the Ausbuild-sponsored community barbecue selling sausage sizzle sandwiches. All proceeds from the barbecue will be going to Bunya Lions Club.
Free face painting will also be on offer, as well as a PYO Plaster gifts activity where children can make a gift for their grandparents.
Bring a picnic rug, a camp chair and sun protection.
Music in the Park Arana Hills is presented by Moreton Bay Regional Council and supported by major sponsors Ausbuild and Moreton Daily.
Cr Matt Constance (Div 10) says there’ll be something for everyone, including food for hungry tummies.
“It doesn’t matter if you forget to pack a picnic we’ve got you covered - not only will there be food trucks there’s also a classic Aussie sausage sizzle on offer,” he explains.
“But being Grandparents Day, you will need to remember a blanket or some chairs to make sure they’re comfy.
“Best of all this will be a showcase of Moreton Bay’s own homegrown musical talents, so bring the family down to Leslie Patrick Park and make the most of it.”
Events for everyone
Mayor Peter Flannery has declared 2022 the year for events.
“Council is delivering a whopping 43 free community events in partnership with Moreton Bay Region Industry & Tourism (MBRIT) this financial year on top of the regular signature events like Moreton Bay Food Wine Festival, Jetty 2 Jetty and of course the absolutely spectacular KiteFest,” he says.
“This is an enormous investment in vibrancy and a direct response to calls from locals for more festivals and activities in their suburbs and neighbourhoods, meaning residents won’t need to leave Moreton Bay.
“So come on down and join in all the fun.”
