The seafood festival is taking shape and is on track to be ready for September 26, it will be the 15th festival and the second under this current Chamber of Commerce committee.
“The seafood will again be prepared and cooked by the men and women of the Tin Can Bay Commercial fishing industry,” said Cameron Henderson, President of the Tin Can Bay Chamber of Commerce & Tourism Inc.
“While some things stay the same there will be some changes this year, we are bringing back some 4×4 exhibitors. There will be an animal petting zoo and some kids entertainment on the main stage with showings in the morning and also afternoon.”
Heading up the musical entertainment will be Stealing Lincoln. Gympie food ambassador Matt Golinski will be in attendance, as will Dan and Steph the 2013 MKR winners.
Cameron said, “By this stage you will have seen the boat and motor getting around town, this is the major fundraiser for the festival. This year there are only 2500 tickets available, so get yours quickly at $5 each.”
On September 12, locals can enjoy the Seafood Dinner with Graham Engeman ready to auction the many goods on hand. Local musician Yasmin Morris, aka Yazmindi, will entertain throughout the night with her indie country style of music.
Cameron encourages community members to come and enjoy the night: “To keep us fed the team at the Sleepy Lagoon Hotel will provide a seafood buffet. Contact them at the Sleepy for tickets, on sale now for $55 dollars a head. There are only 100 tickets available so be quick, get a table together and prepare for a great night.”
