The likes of Noosa MP Sandy Bolton, Noosa Mayor Tony Wellington and entertainer Melony Brests were were among the crowd that attended the Noosa Rainbow River Festival opening event at the Noosa Yacht and Rowing Club.
Kristy said, “We wish to thank Coast Guard Noosa for once again leading the flotilla of fabulous boats on our River Parade.”
“The regular participation of our Coast Guard boats is a welcome sight making all the festival participants feel safe and included.
“This year’s festival saw a record number of boats participate in the parade and we hope to make the 2020 parade even larger.
“A local community group won a $200 cash prize for the best decorated boat – awarded by Noosa’s most famous entertainer Melony Brests.
“The festival, now in its fourth year, has contributed 10’s of thousands of dollars to the Noosaville businesses who have kindly hosted our weekend events and we again wish to thank Noosa Council, Tourism Noosa and the Noosaville Business Association for their generous support.”
