Hervey Bay Seafood Festival promises to be better than ever
LUSH green grass and an ocean breeze under a blue sky should greet the crowd at this year's Hervey Bay Seafood Festival on Sunday.
The event, designed to showcase the best in local marine produce, promises to be better than ever this year.
Event organiser Elaine Lewthwaite said the event was going to be huge.
"I think we're on track to have it ready," she said.
"Deliveries are coming in and on Thursday the park will start to transform."
Scallops, prawns and whiting won't be the only taste on people's lips.
"We will embrace produce from across the region ... such as nuts," she said.
"We're also thinking of foods that go well with seafood."
Kingfisher Bay and the Wide Bay Tafe will be among many businesses on show at the event.
There will also be two stages for entertainment.
Ms Lewthwaite also spoke about reports on Hollywood superstar Angelina Jolie tasting Hervey Bay scallops and Fraser Island prawns.
"I think it's great our product is a really edgy product for the rich and famous," she said.
"Maybe we should invite her (to the seafood festival) next time."
