A big congratulations to Rainbow Beach Sports, Recreation and Memorial Club Inc. We heard they secured funds ($6000) for a Festival of Living to celebrate Queensland Week on Sunday 3 June 2012.
This festival will include all day entertainment by local musicians, an awards presentation, dreamtime stories, local produce stalls and children’s activities. All attendees will be encouraged to wear Queensland colours. It’s another great reason to visit Rainbow Beach – plus it is only just across the road from us!
Queensland Week in 2012 will be bigger and better with 16 events to receive State Government funding including 13 events which are brand new additions to the State celebrations.
Queensland Week marks the State’s official separation from New South Wales.
Other communities receiving a boost under the Queensland Week sponsorship program included Mission Beach, Mareeba, Cairns, Townsville, Burdekin, Charters Towers, Mackay, Whitsunday, Hervey Bay, Woodgate Beach, Toowoomba, Currumbin, Muttaburra, Winton and Blackbutt.
