YOUR SAY: The Lighthouse Festival a great day out

IT IS only three weeks to October 31 and the greatest day out in the Wide Bay - the Lighthouse Festival in beautiful Burnett Heads.

Entry is only $2 or $5 for a family of four, and each visitor gets a free entry form for the gate prize of a weekend in Agnes Water and an all-day trip on the famous 1770 LARC amphibious vehicle.

This year we open the gates at noon and there are eight hours of family fun and entertainment. Watch out for laser shows and a fireworks finale about 8pm.

There will be lots of top-notch entertainment on the two main entertainment stages. Watch out for James Blundell, performing on the main stage, and support the young up-and-coming local artists on the showcase stage.

As usual there are free children's activities, sponsored this year by Wide Bay Kids. It's Halloween and children can make a pumpkin face or a basket for their Halloween trick or treat goodies.

Watch out for Hamburglar, Ziggy the Piggy, Curtis the Turtle and other wandering entertainers, and visit the alpacas and camels. There are also great show rides and helicopter rides for the thrillseekers, plus stalls and food galore.

If that's not enough to convince you to come, there is lots more information at our website, www.thelighthousefestival.com.au, or on our Facebook page.

So mark it on your calendar and have a fantastic day.
