Roving stilt walkers, live music and plenty of dancing and fun will be happening in Childers next Saturday when the community comes together for the Crescent Street Family Festival.
Bundaberg Regional Council's Arts, Culture and Events spokesperson Cr John Learmonth said the free evening of entertainment would kick off from 2 pm on Saturday, 24 July with local and touring performers to put on a show of celebration in the lead up to market day.
“Gather your family, friends and neighbours and enjoy a fantastic evening of live music as we celebrate the wonderful Childers Festival and all of the joy it brings to the region,” he said.
“With entertainment throughout the night, this will be the perfect place to have a dance, enjoy the food and beverages available and get in the mood for Sunday's massive market day.”
International touring band Killer Queen will pay homage to Freddie Mercury with their tribute act while festival favourite Walisuma will be playing their stunning South American sounds to the audience.
Local acts including the Isis District High School and Childers State School string orchestras will also grace the stage while the Childers Country Line Dancers will be getting everyone up and out of their seats.
