A full afternoon and evening of activities is planned for the festival “Teesdale Celebrates.” The rhythms of salsa, ska and indi-rock will descend on Teesdale during the evening as part of the festival.
This year the festival celebrates the Teesdale CFA’s 70th birthday and Live@Turtle Bend’s 10th birthday and the whole community is pulling together to make it an extravaganza.
The festival will feature the eight-person Melbourne ska band Loonee Tunes, who will bring funky rhythms and a taste of Jamaica to the town. Market stalls, food and children’s entertainment will begin from 2pm, followed by a magical twilight lantern parade and music festival beginning from 5pm - offering a feast of entertainment for visitors.
“Teesdale Celebrates” is for all ages, with free entry and great food and drink available. It will run from 2pm – 10pm, Saturday October 12, at Turtle Bend Pavilion, Main Road, Teesdale. The salsa dance class and music performances will commence at 5pm.
