Community Connect: September is a rip-roaring good time for the coast
SEPTEMBER continues to be a bursting with events and has something on offer for everyone.
Cassowary Coast Regional Council Councillor and Community and Culture portfolio holder Trudy Tschui said high quality shows and events would soon be coming to the region and residents were spoiled for options on things to do.
“September kicked off with Funny Mummies at the Con Theatre. Targa Great Barrier Reef rolled into town on Father’s Day for the residents who like their entertainment fast paced.
Councillor Tschui said the fun doesn’t stop there with the Tropical Art Deco Festival swinging into town between the 15 and 19 September. Dust off your art deco inspired fashion for a festival that will transport you back a hundred years.
“From ghost tours, river cruises to markets and movies- it is guaranteed to be a roaring good time. There are too many events to list but check out Council’s website or the Tropical Art Deco Facebook page for all of the events and information.
“One of the highlights of the week is Art Deco in the Movies- The Great Gatsby. Council is sponsoring the showing of this movie through the Queensland Government Mental Health and Wellbeing Package.
“Come and enjoy the movie under the stars in the greenery of Warrina Lakes. Bring your own chairs and rugs.”
An exciting addition to September is the new dates for the Morning Melodies Belladiva- The Skylark Tour rescheduled dates, said Councillor Tschui.
“The all-woman vocal trio Belladiva return to share re-imagined operatic classics and celebrate the world’s best female songwriters and artists from Joni Mitchell and Fleetwood Mac to Sarah McLachlan. Belladiva’s gorgeous combination of classical voices, angelic harmonies and playful musicianship makes the familiar new again with breathtaking modern interpretations of everything from Summertime to Killing Me Softly.
“Belladiva will be performed in Innisfail on Tuesday 28 September and Tully on Wednesday 29 September. Tickets are now on sale.
“Did you also know that many Council facilities can be rented for private events? Throughout September, there are private events also being held at the Shire Hall. If you are interested in holding an event, contact Council for more information.”
