Riverside is Alive in July
Published on 18 July 2019
The Rockhampton River Festival may be over for another year, but there are plenty of opportunities to have fun along the Fitzroy thanks to Rockhampton Regional Council’s Riverside Alive program.
Mayor Margaret Strelow said the range of free events, coordinated by Council’s Advance Rockhampton team, included markets, free workshops, children’s activities, live music and more.
“The Riverside Precinct is of course the home of the River Festival, but it’s important to remember that the absolutely stunning setting is thriving all year round.
“On Friday we will see the Rivernites Markets – including a chance to watch the Friday night footy – from 5pm.
“On Saturday morning you can have fun with the kids at a Rocky Instincts workshop, learning age-old fire-making skills.
“Saturday night will see Silky Fuzz and Woodfire600 Pizzas take over, giving you the opportunity to buy a fresh pizza and then kick back and relax to the sounds of live music.
Mayor Strelow said there would be further events and activities happening throughout the year.
“There’s more music and children’s entertainment next weekend with the belly-laugh inducing Mr Toot, and we are finalising a fantastic looking program for August with even more diverse things to see and do.
“So grab a friend, take your pick of free events, and come and enjoy our beautiful Riverside Precinct.”
