PULL out your diaries and book September 29 for the fun filled Carnivale at Cabarita Beach.

Held on the foreshore park outside the Cabarita Beach SLSC and the Cabarita Beach Hotel, it will run from 3-8pm.

Cabarita Beach Main St is included in this inspiring community event by offering Carnivale specials in the restaurants, art exhibitions and other creative endeavours.

"Next year we hope to expand this even more," said co-ordinator Duke Albada.

"The Carnivale truly advertises what a vibrant village Cabarita Beach is.

"Volunteers are busy scheduling a program full of music, family fun, arts, craft, dance, home made/grown/baked produce and community stalls.

"There is still room for artists to come and present their wares under the artist's marquis or at the Cabarita Beach SLSC.

"We are urging face painters, clowns, jugglers and people with ideas for family fun activities to put up your hand."

Email your interest to cabacreative@yahoo.com.au.

"Numerous local businesses have come forward offering prizes to the Ultimate Caba Experience Raffle, adding to several spectacular prize packs."

If you have a business and want to be promoted at this event email stunnedmullet2488@gmail.com or contact 0439 670 336.

The Cabarita Beach Bowls & Sports Club, Cabarita Beach Hotel and Solo Waste Management, Insight Image and Print Spot are sponsors.

"You can also help by giving a few minutes of your time and follow Caba Creative on community engine.com.au which will generate some much needed funding to cover costs."

Kit from Studio 44 is organising recycle art and design workshops.

"I love to reuse materials in my practice," she said.

"At the moment I have a lot of beautiful industrial waste materials I transform in exclusive lampshades, waste bins, design objects and artworks.

"At my studio in Fingal I am running workshops teaching art and production techniques as a fundraiser for the Carnivale."

Book by calling Kit on 0402 335 646.
