Title : Festival Cairns in Full Swing
Cairns’ annual Festival started off with a big bang this weekend. Thousands turned up for the Grand Parade and Fireworks display on Saturday and those staying in one of the Cairns Apartments along the Esplanade had the prime spots in the city to watch it all.
Festival Cairns runs until 6 September so there’s still plenty to enjoy including: lots of free live music on the Esplanade (bring a picnic rug), the Buskers Festival (with buskers coming from all over the country to perform) and heaps of art exhibitions.
For serious music lovers there’s also the TimeOut Concert which will be rocking the city in Fogarty Park on Saturday 29th August. The Hilltop Hoods, Grinspoon and blues duo The Fumes will be performing along with several local bands (ticket price $80, time 3pm-10pm)
This is a cool time of year to visit Cairns. The weather is just starting to warm up with 27 degree days and gorgeous blue skies. We truly live in paradise!
