The rhythms of salsa, ska and indie-rock will descend on Teesdale for its special festival ‘Teesdale Celebrates’ for an afternoon and evening of music, food and community, all in jubilation of Teesdale CFA’s 70th birthday!
Headlining the festival fun will be the eight-person Melbourne ska band Loonee Tunes, who will bring funky rhythms and a taste of Jamaica, that’s guaranteed to get punters up and about.
In the prelude to the headline act, salsa dance instructor, David Smile, will set the mood with a one-hour salsa dance class available to everyone, while the Geelong region’s salsa legends Los Locos and young four-piece indie rock band Channel Marker will continue the beat.
Market stalls, food and children’s entertainment will begin from 2pm, followed by a magical twilight lantern parade and music festival beginning from 5pm – offering a feast of entertainment for visitors.
“This is Teesdale’s night of nights,” said organiser Claire Whiteley. “We are really proud of our event. The children at Teesdale Primary School have made some amazing lanterns over the past few years and it’s wonderful to see them at twilight as they wend their way to the pavilion.
Teesdale Celebrates is for all ages, with free entry and great food and drink available. It will run from 2pm – 10pm, Saturday October 12, at Turtle Bend Pavilion, Main Road, Teesdale.
