Lots to do at RedFest

RedFest has different appeal to different people.

For some it was the side show activities, for others the entertainment.

The festival kicked off with an Irish night on Friday and finished with Troy Cassar Daley pulling crowds on Sunday afternoon.

Headline act Justice Crew also drew a crowd of hundreds on Saturday, while the ever-popular lantern parade once again lit up Norm Price Park – Redland Showgrounds with a plethora of spectacular lanterns.

RedFest president Luke Kinman said the new look festival had brought a new energy and enticed people – new and old faithfuls – who were eager to be involved.

“RedFest is the only event in the Redlands that is run by the community for the community,” he said. 

“This is what this area is all about.

“We have had a record number of volunteers, all chipping in.”

Whatever the attraction, the annual festival offered something for all ages and interests.
