The annual Moore Park Beach Festival Art Competition and Bazaar is a
highlight of the Wide Bay/Burnett Region's cultural scene.
This year's Festival was no exception!
From Friday 7th to Sunday 9th August 2015, the public enjoyed a
fun-filled family weekend.
School participation has always been a big part of the festival with
many of the local schools participating in the Art programme as well
as providing art in the form of music on the Friday morning. 2015 continued
this tradition with school bands giving a free concert on the grassed
area of the Community Hall. The concert was open to the public and
many came and supported these young musicians as they
enjoyed performing their music. Thanks go to teachers and parents for
their support of this important part of the weekend.
