If you’re looking for a way to spend Sundays over the summer, Palmy Sunday Fun Day is the answer.
The free event will include live music, food stalls and face painting for the family to enjoy and it’s all thanks to Division sale propecia 13 Councillor Daphne McDonald and events curator Polly Snowden.
Cr McDonald has been part of a number of community events including Music in the Park, taking inspiration from them to continue the support for local musicians around the Gold Coast.
“I’d been speaking to [Division 9 Councillor] Glenn Tozer and they started the Summertime Sessions at Mudgeeraba and so I arranged a meeting with Polly and that’s how we came about Sunday Fun Day,” said Cr McDonald.
“I’ve been very fortunate because I’ve just handed it all to Polly.”
“I supplied the funding and I’ve handed it to her so she’s doing all the work. She’s one fantastic lady.”
The praise is mutual, as Snowden commends the ongoing support Cr McDonald has given viagra soft tabs 100 mg throughout the community.
“She loves music and she’s been really supportive of all the music programs in her district for many years now and so she rang me and was very excited about it, it’s been awesome,” Snowden said.
“I’m an old hand at it now, so I’m really passionate about community events and décor and music, I just like creating spaces.”
And what a space she is creating – the Palm Beach Parklands will be recreated to fit an array of food stalls as two acts nizagara viagra onlin perform for crowds of up to thousands each Sunday through to the start of February.
With the success of Summertime Sessions in the Village and Buskers in the Creek, the rise of community events across the city has had an overwhelming response from the public, and Palmy Sunday Fun Day is expected to be no different.
“Anything that’s free in the area, free for families and is family orientated, always gets a really good turn out,” Snowden explained.
“My daughter is 15 months old, so she’s grown up going to all these community events and playing with other kids, getting to know other kids and meeting other families and it’s been great.”
As families set up their picnic blankets for the first Fun Day, local band Jimmy the Saint and the Sinners will be kicking off the event with their signature voodoo blues sound.
One of the Sinners, George Carpenter, believes concerts like this are a vital part of the city’s music culture.
“Families and younger kids who wouldn’t usually go to a licensed venue being exposed to some great local artists is a good thing for everyone,” he said.
“It will be our last gig on the Gold Coast for the year too, so we thought, what better way to go out than a great free show that all our friends and family can come and enjoy.”
Carpenter believes their set will be especially fitting to the pirate playground because, “a lot of Jim’s lyrics are about boats and sea voyages and things like that.”
A variety of musicians from all genres will perform across the series, but Cr McDonald is hoping to include even more local talent to the lineup after being a judge at the recent Battle of the Bands.
“The quality of music that we have, it’s just really A1,” she said.
“It’s just getting that exposure for some of these groups and I’d like to have that included in these Sunday Fun Days, so that some of the musicians get the public exposure that they might not normally have.”
With the summer school holidays only weeks away, there’s no doubting the popularity Palm Beach Parklands buy viagra order is about to have.
Palmy Sunday Fun Day runs 29 November 29 to 6 February 2016, every Sunday from 4.00-6.30pm
