Footy final festivities in Bundaberg

FOOTY fever has hit the Bundaberg region with pubs and clubs gearing up for NRL Grand Final day festivities on Sunday.

The Club Hotel will be screening the game with audio around the venue and has invited everyone along to watch the all Queensland game.

"We will have drink specials and there will be a great atmosphere for all the footy lovers," venue manager Phil Coles said.

"It is also a good opportunity to come down with the family for dinner before the game and to dig in to one of Bundy's best steaks."

The Sugarland Tavern are pumped for a big day and will kick-start festivities from 11am to continue into the night.

Assistant manager Chris Naumann said footy fans would be able to watch the game from all corners of the club.

"We will have all of our TV's switched on including our big screen, which is the biggest in Bundaberg," he said.

Queenslander Hotel administrative manager Mellisa Dean said the venue would be pulling out all the stops for grand final night from 6pm.

"We will have our NRL promo girls on site as well as great games, raffles and prizes throughout the night," she said.

"From 9.30pm our entertainment will kick off for the night, with Todd Keightly set to perform."

Other venues around the region who will screening the game include The Spotted Dog, The Waves Sports Club, Brothers Sports Club and The Metro Hotel.
