Talent abounds for Easter Family Fun Day in the Bay

PLANNING for Hervey Bay Council for the Arts Easter Family Fun Day is well under way and will take place on Saturday, April 19 at Scarness Park.

To help celebrate we have a good line-up of local talent.

There will be a craft tent and games that are sure to keep all ages amused while crafters are preparing new and exciting products and lucky people will win chocolate Mary River turtles this year, as well as delicious chocolate rabbits.

This month's open mike on Easter Sunday will be a tribute to our farmers who continue to struggle through the drought. We will have a wishing well for anyone wanting to pop a few dollars in and all money raised will go to the drought appeal.

We welcome all artists young and old to come down and play a few tunes, dance or recite to help make the day fun for all.

All craft, music, dance and theatrical groups are invited to apply for a stall at the Music and Arts Expo coming up June 1.

This is a celebration of Queensland Week and is sponsored by the Premier's Department of the Queensland State Government.

Application forms are on the website.

It is a great time for all groups to get their message out to the public.

The HBCA Annual Writing Competitions for Adults and Youth are now open with entry forms on the website.

Great prizes are on offer.

Showcase in the Park at Scarness will be held on Sunday, April 6 with the cool sounds of local musician Dave Turner, from 10am-2pm.

Bring a chair or blanket to sit on and enjoy our wonderful weather.

HUMPS, Hervey Bay Ukulele Musical Pickers and Strummers, meet at Kondari every Tuesday.

Starting time is 6.30pm for beginners and 7pm for all others.
