Fraser Coast prides itself on it’s connection with humpback whales and the ocean. On 11 -20 August 2017, the Hervey Bay Ocean Festival comes to town. With unbelievably fresh local seafood and a whole day of seaside goodness, you’ll definitely jump on board.
Some of the main events include Blessing of the Fleet Paddle Out for Whale, Hervey Bay Seafood Festival, Whale Parade and Concert.
It will be held at the Charlton Esplanade at Pialba, Fraser Coast.
On the other hand, head on over to Maryborough for the Rockin’ Maryborough Vintage Festival! It is set against the scenic backdrop of Maryborough’s heritage streetscapes. The Maryborough Vintage Festival celebrates everything vintage and retro including iconic music, fashion and more!
To start off the festival, there will be a Rock n Roll Vintage Ball and Miss Rockin’ Maryborough Pinup Pageant on Friday night. The celebration spans from 15 to 17 September 2017 with Rockabilly Dance Party, live music, dancing on the streets, vintage car displays, motorbikes, caravans and pushbikes.
Other features of the festival include Snow N Shine, Pinup Styling Workshops, dance lessons, vintage markets, Little Miss Maryborough Pageant and a pooch parade. That’s a lot of fun for a weekend!
