Mackay and Whitsunday Life

Saturday Street Fun

Traffic will be halted on the bustling main street of Airlie Beach this Saturday and the steady flow of vehicles will be replaced by a plethora of colourful community events for the Mackay and Whitsunday Life Saturday Street Fun.

A hive of activity for festival goers to enjoy, the day will kick-off with Fraser Ford Revvin’ the Reef Car Show.

Car enthusiasts from all over the region have been busy polishing their ‘pride and joy’, ready to display amongst a sea of other cars, bikes, and trucks.

Beautiful Pin-Up Girls will wander through the crowd with Rock and Roll music completing the nostalgic ambiance of yesteryear.

Continuing with the leisurely yet dynamic pace, there will be continuous activities throughout the day.

Roving Street Performers will surprise and amaze, Wildlife Whitsunday will bring along native wildlife and there will be live music throughout the day.

Attendees are welcome to head to the nearby Art Expo and cast their vote for the People’s Choice award, or cruise down to the Airlie Beach Hotel for a lazy afternoon listening to some Classic Rock Legends.

Hungry? Head down to the Whitsunday Foodservice Eat Street where you’ll find a hot bed of food vans selling a range of delicious treats.

Then, at 4pm the main street transforms into a racetrack for the Medibank Magic Mile, where children, adults, and everyone in between are invited to participate.

Enjoy the cheers from onlookers as you dash by at top speed and challenge yourself in this exciting event.

The day finishes with the iconic Rotary Street Parade, a colourful and worthy finale to an action-packed event.
