CAIRNS FESTIVAL: Get the badge, Madge!

Now here's a freebie that you'd better get onto.

Free Festival badges are available to wear over the next two weeks and it will get you some rather special bargaining around town.

The badge will get you some fantastic deals and discounts, and you'll support our wonderful local businesses during Festival time.

There's only 1,000 Festival badges available, and a lot have been dished out so far.

There's around a dozen restaurants, shops, and tour companies, offering something special to anyone wearing the badge.

See the list below, or check the Festival website new deals. All you have to do, it show your badge, and enjoy this extra bit of Festival goodness... however you must be wearing it on your bod, somewhere that can be seen!

CairnsBlog is an official Media Partner of Festival Cairns (it was worth a huge bunch of free chocolate, so what could I say).

You can't live in the Far North and not follow the community and social commentary purveyed by Michael Moore and CairnsBlog.net. It's a continually updated , shamelessly opinionated look at the goings on around us—from political and environmental, to arts, culture, and leisure pursuits. Its' also very funny at times, biting and sharp witted at others, and always a good read of the news that's fit to print (and some that isn't). Moore has joined the Festival's blogging line-up, and will be herein sharing his thoughts about the 2010 season and events. And as New Media Partner, he'll be trying out all sorts of coverage ideas — vlogging, viral linkages, cool little click and win on-line contests—to help us bring the Festival to audiences at home and abroad.

I think 35% off all piercings sounds just fab. Just the thing to signal an election year.

Seriously though - good these businesses have got on board, & the the Festival Cairns crew have thought to get them on board.
