Family festival ready to rock

ORGANISERS of the much-loved Centenary Rocks Festival have been working hard for the past year to make sure everything is perfect for their upcoming two day event this July.

Rocks Riverside Park will once again come alive with music, food, rides and entertainment for the whole family on July 16 and 17.

The festival has been run since 2004 by members of the Centenary Community Connections Group and has become one of the premier events to feature on Brisbane’s western suburbs calendar.

Centenary Community Connections volunteer hub manager and president Belinda Karnaghan has revealed some of the activities which will feature at the festival.

“We will have so much to see and do for the whole family to enjoy,” she said.

“We don’t want to reveal everything just yet because we do want to leave some surprises.

“But all the food venues have been locked in, and we will have lots of carnival style rides.

“There will also be lots of live entertainment, with four bands taking to the main stage.

“The Army Rock Band has gotten back to us and they will be appearing again. They performed last year and everyone loved them.

“We will also have the Geckos Wildlife Show back, the Cars Fest, performances by local dance schools, martial arts demonstrations and games.

“The organisation Life Be In It will be there and they will have all sorts of games for everyone to enjoy.

“We are even trying to organise a big tug-of-war competition, so if any schools or sporting teams would like to be involved, we encourage you to get in touch.”

The Satellite helped sponsor the hugely popular event last year, and are proud to once again team up with Centenary Community Connections to be the official print media partner.

We will be featuring a number of stories about the event in the lead up, and will once again be producing your four-page Centenary Rocks Festival lift-out the week of the event so you won’t miss any of the action.
