Lighthouse Festival chairperson Sherilee Ramm said the town’s historic lighthouse was the centrepiece for the event that took 12 months to plan.
“We have so much here today, from artwork and photography, to rides and food,” Sherliee said.
“It’s just a beautiful day, we have wonderful entertainment and is it's a family atmosphere for all ages.”
Schools take part in 2019 Lighthouse Festival
Burnett Heads State School principal Kirsten Clements said the school was raising money for its P and C and the festival was well attended by the supportive community.
“We have our students, and many other students from a number of other schools, singing in the choir, and lion dancing,” Kirsten said.
“It’s been absolutely fabulous, we have been here all morning and it's really great to be able to promote our school here.
“It’s just been a lovely day and great because a lot of the activities are free for the kids, and by participating it’s really a great way to be part of the community.”
Kirsten said the seaside town had recently put on several successful events including the Lighthouse Music Festival and the PBR Bull Mania, and it was nice to see people turning out in droves with support for each one.
