Ballina’s Prawn Festival kicks off tonight with a degustation dinner at Spinnakers Restaurant, featuring the popular crustacean, and continues throughout the day tomorrow at Missingham Park.
The ever-popular prawn shelling competition is back, together with the DIY raft races, sandcastle competition, trawler parade, grand street parade, skate competition, artisan markets and wrapping up with the annual Macadamia Castle fireworks show.
Throughout the day you’ll be able to gobble up prawns cooking in myriad ways or kick back in the family friendly beer garden on site.
Of course there will be music throughout the day, featuring popular acts including Casey Barnes, Juzzie Smith, Dan Hannaford, Josh Arent, Walrus and the Carpenter, plus Broadfoot, the Young Murphies, Didgera and more.
With all this for just $2 entry and $2 parking, you’ll want to turn up early to make the most of the day.
