Festival Fever Hits The Hills This May!

Experience the Hills District like never before with an expansive program of unique events and activities spanning the entire month of May as part of the Hills Festival.

Moreton Bay Region Industry & Tourism (MBRIT) in partnership with the Moreton Bay Regional Council and local community stakeholders, have captured the vibrancy and diversity of the Hills District in a month-long program of events and family-friendly entertainment.

‘May is set to be a fun-filled month for locals and visitors alike who’ll be spoilt for choice with activities and attractions around the Hills District,’ said MBRIT CEO Shane Newcombe.

‘The festival is best known for its family-favourite Hills Carnivale which will be back bigger and better than ever on Saturday, 26 May at George Wilmore Park from noon, with an exciting program,’ Division 10 Councillor Matt Constance said.

There will be $2 rides, two stages of entertainment, free workshops, delicious food stalls and an explosive fireworks finale. The Carnivale always proves to be a fun and cost-effective afternoon for the family.

The popular Hills District and Bunya Garden Competition, Mother’s Day Picnic in the Park and Movie in the Park have also made their way onto the Hills Festival program this year, as well as a host of events and workshops being hosted at the Arana Hills Library.

Another addition to the festival is the Mother’s Day Picnic in the Park at George Willmore Park. Bring along a blanket or folding chair for an afternoon of free live music and food trucks.

Thirsty for knowledge? Well you’re in luck this May with stacks of free events and workshops being hosted at the Arana Hills Library.

‘From tips and tricks from gardening gurus, career councillors to finance experts, there’s something for everyone at the Arana Hills Library during May,’ said Cr Constance.

If that’s not enough excitement, there’s also a Movie in the Park on the 5th May at Leslie Patrick Park, Everton Hills where the colourful, family-friendly film ‘Trolls’ will be screened under the stars.

Make sure you keep an eye out for the festival mini-mag that will be distributed throughout the community. For more information about the Hills Festival and a full program of events visit: www. hillsfestival.com.au
