We’re getting excited! Only 23 more sleeps (that’s just 3 more weekends!) until Santa arrives. And this weekend we are BOOKED OUT for the Country at the Beach, it should be fantastic.
The Rainbow Beach Community Christmas Spectacular boasts 5 live music performances – and Santa is visiting in a helicopter! Rainbow Beach Community Hall and Centreblock is the place to be on 3-7pm, December 15. There’s a Slip and Slide, licensed bar, market stalls, food – and funds go to communities affected by the recent bushfires and our P&C. Thanks to all the sponsors involved.
The Tin Can Bay Summer Carnival opens 6pm Saturday December 21 and it runs every evening until January 4, at the Lion’s Park next to the Tin Can Bay RSL. Christmas Eve will see Santa 6pm on – there’s also fireworks at 8.30pm and again at 9.30pm on New Year’s Eve (subject to weather conditions and permit approvals). Free entry.
Santa also visits the Sports Club on Christmas Eve from 5pm. Plus they are hosting a Roaring 20s New Year’s Eve Party with Linc Phelps Band live 9pm-1pm and drinks and pizza bar packages! More live music each weekend in December. There more New Year’s Eve fun with a Luau Hawaiian Party at the Rainbow Beach Hotel with limbo and tiki cocktails, plus live music from Cool Lula and Real Deal.
We are excited to welcome the ‘Festival of Small Halls’ for its third year in a row. Entertainers include the award winning high energy husband and wife team Hat Fitz and Cara who have clocked up 10 years of performances world wide. Also on board is one of Britains most exciting talents, English singer/songwriter/guitarist, Blair Dunlop who has released 3 albums and toured widely around the globe
Our community is just one of many across Australia benefitting from the Festival of Small Halls ‘Summer Tour’ designed to bring world class performances to small communities who might otherwise miss out.
Our own Tina Louise will be opening the show November 28, at 6.30 for a 7pm start. Tickets are $20 (under 16 free) and are now on sale at the Rainbow Beach Community Resource Centre or online at festivalofsmallhalls.com as well as on the night at the door. Join us for a BBQ from 5pm and drinks at the bar or coffee and cake from the kitchen.
I can’t believe there are only seven more weekends until Christmas!
The Nipper Carnival was huge – it was lovely to hear reports of a fun day out – we received comments on how well the day was run. Well done, Queensland SLS and our local club!
Although our kids are now too old for nippers, Heatley is back as an Age Manager again every Sunday. It is mandatory beach time, but also so important for Aussie kids to know how to be safe in the surf – and maybe grow up into a surf lifesaver themselves!
Things have been quite busy at Rainbow Getaway – with more planting, finishing touches outside apartments, and bookings have been rolling in.
So much so, if you are keen to escape before Santa arrives for some quiet relaxation – or want to ensure you have some family time together in the school break – please call us now so you aren’t disappointed.
Although we are booked out for the Country at the Beach in early December, we still have availability for the new rock festival – Big Summer Blowout on the last weekend of summer.
Plus there is a new pizza place in town – just across the road, near the IGA – we’re looking forward to checking it out.
The weather’s been beautiful, beach great for swims and walks – hope to see you soon!
