Carnivale spirit alive in Cabarita

THERE will be colour galore at Cabarita Beach Carnivale this coming Saturday when the village explodes into life with music, art and food galore.

Held on the foreshore park outside the Cabarita Beach SLSC and the Cabarita Beach Hotel, it will run from 3 to 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."

A special feature of the Carnivale is 'Naturally Bizarre'.

Gina Merillo has organised a fun, colourful day of tie and dye workshops.

With a talk on colours Ms Mirello will show you how to use rainbow dyes and Shibori, an ancient art from Japan.
