The countdown is on for the 2021 Maraka Festival


The countdown is on for the 2021 Maraka Festival. The festivities kick off next weekend with both the Queen Presentation Night and the Afternoon Tea being held on Saturday night and Sunday afternoon, respectively.


Spokesman Kieran Volpe says both events are sure to be a hit, with tickets selling fast


“Tickets for both events went on sale this week, they are selling like hotcakes, in particular, the Afternoon Tea, which always attracts a sell-out crowd. Presentation Night tickets will be on sale throughout next week at Lisa Maree 2, for $35 each. Keep an eye on our Facebook page for more detailed times.”


“We were unable to arrange a cocktail bar this year, so the Queen Presentation Night is essentially the old cocktail night, without the cocktails, but rest assured there will be a fully stocked bar. Anthony John (aka Tony Fracchia) will be providing live entertainment for the night, and there will be plenty of food to go around, with the event being catered for by Marian & Piera”


While the Queen Presentation Night is a little more laid back and has more of a party atmosphere, the Afternoon Tea will be a little more formal and will give the community the opportunity to meet both the Princess and Queen entrants.


“The ever-popular Afternoon Tea at the Royal Hotel gives everyone the chance to hear from each Princess and Queen Entrant, while also enjoying an afternoon of raffles, a fashion parade by local suppliers, and of course, afternoon tea. It is a chance for the ladies to get dressed in their best, have a catch up, and enjoy themselves during an afternoon out,” Mr Volpe said.


Keep an eye out on Facebook and in next week’s edition of the Wet Tropic Times to meet our Queen and Princess entrants
