Regatta to host entertainment extravaganza for Airlie Beach
AIRLIE Beach Race Week is set to be a feast for the senses.
Boasting a stunning line-up of live entertainment, sumptuous food stalls, a fun run, an outrigger challenge, a long lunch and even a wine show, the whole community is welcome to join in the wonder this year.
The free live music kicks off today (Thursday, August 11), with The Natural Culture easing you into the Race Week fun.
From there revellers are in for a rollicking good time with the offshore entertainment continuing every afternoon.
Taking to the stage will be solo artist Jan Arns, local lads The Cadillacs, blues boys the Mason Rack Band, tune smiths ChuRisma, chilled out Chris Booroff, soulful Sun Salute and high energy The Hilly Billy Goats.
Keep fuelled up for a night of dancing with food stalls offering a feast of options.
Grab a wood fired pizza from Hungry Possum, enjoy fresh shucked oysters served up by our own Oyster Girl, get into the Olympic spirit with the Brazilian Food Guys or sample the mouth-watering menu from the Whitsunday Sailing Club.
With all this fantastic entertainment costing nothing to see, marketing director Adrian Bram said it was the perfect excuse to experience the Whitsundays.
"Airlie's already the jewel in the crown of the North Queensland coast and this is a darn good excuse to jump in the car and drive the three hours from Townsville or the hour from Mackay to spend a few nights in town enjoying the free entertainment, the food stalls and going to the wine shows," he said.
