Community to come together
Moreton Bay Regional Councillor Darren Grimwade (Div 11) says Dayboro is getting the festive season started early.
“With Halloween behind us, it’s time to warm up the vocal cords for Christmas,” he says.
“This is the perfect event for a practice sing-a-long before Carols, and best of all we’re featuring home-grown Moreton Bay talent. So come on down and support your local artists.
“I’m so proud to be part of a Council that’s expanded our events calendar to bring more vibrancy and events to communities like Dayboro.”
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.”
