Arts pave the way for Milbi at the Lighthouse

The inaugural Chalk the Sidewalk at Burnett Heads was a great success with young and old community members chalking some vibrant designs.

Milbi at the Lighthouse will pave the way for arts activities with the return of an art and photography exhibition and the Chalk the Sidewalk event.

The events are being hosted by the Burnett Heads Progress & Sports Association in conjunction with the Bundaberg Regional Council music festival event.

Children will be encouraged to Chalk the Sidewalk at the Historical Lighthouse with over $500 worth of prizes up for grabs.

There is something for all ages, with the activity open to children up to 18 years and split into three different age categories.

All those entering who are 14 years or younger must be accompanied by an adult.

Burnett Heads Progress & Sports Association President Daniel Walshaw said they were looking forward to a great line up of events for this year's Milbi at the Lighthouse.

“This event will set the scene for what is sure to be a fantastic afternoon of entertainment with plenty for the family to do,” Daniel said.

“At the conclusion of this event, Milbi at the Lighthouse and the Gladstone Ports Corporation Arts and Photography Exhibition will begin, with both events providing plenty of diverse things to do and see across the day.

“In 2019 there were just over 60 entries for Chalk the Sidewalk and we hope to at least double the entries this year.”

The Burnett Heads Art and Photography Exhibition will showcase a range of different artwork and photography with pieces available for sale at a special meet and greet event the night before the exhibition.

From 4pm to 6pm on Friday 29 October, locals will be able to meet artists at the Burnett Heads Community Hall.

Judging of the artworks will be completed by an expert panel prior to the exhibition with winners announced on the day of the festival at the hall.
