Thousands of community members are expected to attend this Sunday’s fourth annual Beef to Beach event in Emu Park as part of Livingstone Shire’s official Queensland Day celebrations!
Livingstone Shire Council will host the event on 3 June, from 12pm – 5pm at Bell Park for an afternoon of family fun including a great stage program of free entertainment, games, rides, market stalls and a Big Beef BBQ conducted by the Emu Park Swimming Club.
Mayor Bill Ludwig said the annual event has become a hugely popular community day out to celebrate our state’s culture, heritage, people and industry.
“This provides a wonderful opportunity for the community to share a sense of pride in being both Australian and a Queenslander. It is a time to reflect on how lucky we are to be part of such a wonderful, diverse state,” Mayor Ludwig said.
“Council is proud to once again stage this year’s event, which was first created by Council in 2015 as a unique way to both celebrate Queensland Day and the shire’s diversity and lifestyle.
“Council would like to thank the Queensland Government for their partnership and also our corporate and community sponsors who have supported this fantastic community event.”
Deputy Mayor Nigel Hutton said Beef to Beach would also provide an economic boost for businesses in Emu Park.
“Events like Beef to Beach attract visitors from all over the region while showcasing our coastal lifestyle, which continues to make tourism one of the Shire’s key economic drivers.”
Assistant Minister for Education and Member for Keppel Brittany Lauga encouraged residents to come along and enjoy an afternoon of family entertainment while celebrating the history of Queensland.
“It’s brilliant to see this event continue to grow every year while creating such a positive impact and a strong sense of community spirit within our region,” Mrs Lauga said.
