The perfect toast to dads

FOR an ideal Father's Day out with food, drink and great live music all on offer, a visit to Toast Urunga is a must.

Now in its ninth year, this popular foodie event is just two weeks away and is expected to draw thousands to Urunga's picturesque riverbank on Sunday, September 6.

As well as being a fantastic day for dad, Toast Urunga is all about fresh, global food, regional wines and great music.

On the day there will also be some wonderful cooking and cheese making demonstrations. The festival kicks off at 10am and will feature more than 70 diverse food stalls.

"The stalls will offer everything from paella to sushi as well as local fresh seafood, deli meats, vegetarian delights, gourmet cheeses, spicy curries and plenty of sweet treats too," organiser Greg McPhee said.

"Boutique beers and a variety of Australian wines will be sure to complete the taste sensation.

"The experience is topped off with music throughout the day from many wonderful performers and bands such as the rockin' Hornet and the popular Bostocks. For car- lovers, classic vintage cars will be on display next to the Ocean View Hotel.

"There's also plenty of fantastic entertainment for the kids with performances from the Australian Circus Institute, smiley shows, sand wizards, jumping castle, trampoline bungee, face painting or personalised, interactive kids karaoke.

Don't forget to bring picnic chairs or a rug to sit on but leave pets, alcohol and picnic baskets at home.

Enjoy the food, fun and festivities from 10am to 4pm at Morgo St Reserve on Sunday, September 6. Entry is by $5 donation with accompanying children free (under 12).

Free parking is available at the Urunga Sports ground with a courtesy shuttle bus service to the event.
