Date & Location is 29th of March at Suttons Beach Redcliffe.

Just another fabulous time at the bayside during Easter is when Redcliffe hosts their 'Festival of Sails Event. Competing at the same time with its festival friend, the Bluewater Festival over the otherside of the Hornibrook bridge at Sandgate. With Redcliffe however being a bigger bayside, it has the capacity to host a little bit of the 'same' plus, a bit more.

Good news is that you do have the option to visit both since they are in close proximity, with each having their own special festivities.

Fantastic fun for the kids, with some of the highlights for this Easter event including watching the Easter Bunny travel through the sky with his parachute before making a landing on the beach.
11am is the approximate planned time for the Easter Bunny landing, weather dependent.

The day certainly promises to be a fun time for family and kids with entertainment, music, roving performers, numerous art and craft stalls and 'food feasting' spots set up, some with outdoor seating arrangements.

Another highlight at this beach festival is the Giant Sand Sculptor, who builds more than just an ordinary castle from the sand. Don't forget to bring along buckets and spades for your kids so they can play in the sand and build their 'own' castle.

Information and further festival photos can be found on the Moreton Bay Council Website.

Find information here on the Sandgate Bluewater Festival article happening on the other side of the bridge.
