What better way to celebrate Grandparents’ Day, than by enjoying a Music in the Park event at Bribie Island?
The free event on October 29, from 11am-4pm, will feature performances by musicians from the area, giving locals the chance to enjoy local talent in a relaxed setting at Cosmos Park, Banksia Beach.
The line-up includes Two Much, Kiani Jazz, Rockabellas, Ruby Gilbert and more.
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 the Bribie Island Rotary Club.
Free face painting will also be on offer.
Bring a picnic rug, a camp chair and sun protection.
Music in the Park Bribie Island is presented by Moreton Bay Regional Council and supported by major sponsors Ausbuild and Moreton Daily.
Moreton Bay Regional Councillor Brooke Savige (Div 1) is encouraging families to come on down to the event and warm up their vocal cords for Christmas.
“We’re getting into the festive season early on Bribie with this free family event on October 29,” she says.
“It’s a full day’s entertainment beneath the trees of Cosmos Park and it’s free, so come on down and enjoy the beauty of the Banksia Beach area.
“I love that our expanded events calendar is bringing more vibrancy and activity to the island, but most of all I love that events like these bring our community together.”
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.”
