Weekend Ski Boat festival

2011-04-29 00:00

THE Marlin Ski Boat Club on Port Edward beach will host the third Annual Port Edward Ski Boat Festival this weekend.

The competition will be held tomorrow and on Sunday, but this evening a briefing and music — by DJ Barry — will set the tone.

Launch sites between Port Edward and Hibberdene are all being used for the competition.

A small fee will be charged to enter the Port Edward beach area at the weekend and the funds will be used for the local Help Foundation, which helps families in need in the area.

Local businesses and churches will have stalls with food and other items for sale, while entertainment for children includes a jumping castle and a Supachube.

An SAB beer tent has been set up with a big-screen television for sport coverage.

Local police, traffic police and GP Security guards will be on hand to ensure safety. — Witness Reporter.
