The Bangalow Parklands team has announced that The Waterfront bandstand building will be officially opened by Ballina MP Tamara Smith and Byron Shire mayor Simon Richardson at a family fun day from 11.30am on Sunday February 21.
‘We’re very happy to have our old friend, journalist and raconteur Mick O’Regan, to be master of ceremonies at our launch event,’ said Christobel Munson from the Bangalow Parklands team. ‘Included in the program are several live acts to illustrate how the bandstand can be used.’
‘Acapella group Choir Baby, rock and roll dancers, classical guitarist Nick Repin and flautist Loani McRae will all be performing, with the Welcome to Country to be given by Delta Kay. We’re suggesting anyone wanting to come along could BYO picnic, but if that’s not possible, no one need go hungry as Bangalow Historical Society’s Museum and Tearooms will be holding a barbecue’.
The Waterfront bandstand was built thanks to a Community Building Partnership grant from the NSW Department of Family and Community Services, which also funded a mural on the park’s amenities block by local artist Samantha Wortelhock.
