Today marks one month till the Cairns Festival will be in full swing.
It's a special festival as this year will the the 50th year since locals and new arrivals alike, have celebrated together.
Eric Holowacz is again leading the team and hopes that the fresh and invigorated festival that so many applauded last year, will be built on for this year's event.
"This year is our milestone season, 50 years under a tropical sun, and will offer hundreds of great events over 17-days, including a healthy offering of free events and experiences," Eric says.
Cairns Festival runs from August 19th to September 4th. Activities will be in the streets, parks, and venues around Cairns.
"The main stage in Fogarty Park comes alive on Friday 19th August when the new Cairns Gondwana Indigenous Children's Choir takes the stage," Eric says. "The choir will be joined by Will Kepa and friends, and then the legendary Torres Strait Islander, Seaman Dan."
