Music in the Park is back and tuning up for the first free concert of 2023.

Ultramarine Pde Park in Griffin will host the four-hour program, which has five performers, on Saturday week (March 18), from 1-5pm.

There will also be food trucks (Baked Spuds, Whatcha Brewing and Doin Donuts), fairy floss, bubbles and lolly bags.

North Lakes Lions will run the community sausage sizzle, there will be free face painting and a onsite artist painting the event.

“This is going to be a cracker for families, with free entertainment,” Deputy Mayor and Councillor for Division 4 Jodie Shipway said.

“There’ll be a real festival vibe, so all you need to bring is your picnic rug, chair and some sun protection.

“This event will be a showcase of local talent featuring local musicians, so come on down to support our emerging artists.”

Performing live on stage will be Mia Ambrosi, Max Irvin Amelia and the Grizzly, Ky Lovell and Waiting for Brenda.

Yuchun Joy, who graduated from UniSC last year as a Bachelor of Creative Industries, will be doing a painting combining nature, music and community elements of the event.

“It’s free, it’s live, it’s local and I want to see a lot more of these kinds of events in our neighbourhoods because it’s close enough to home that you don’t have to pay for parking in Brisbane or get stuck on the Bruce,” said Mayor Peter Flannery.

“I’m really keen to hear from locals their ideas on how we can expand our music, events, and entertainment programs to make them even better for you.

“That’s why this year we almost doubled the number of community events on our social calendar, and locals have turned out in droves.”

Parking in the vicinity is limited. Walking to Music in the Park is highly encouraged.
