 BLUEWATER
FESTIVAL
POSTPONED
TStory Linda Read
he famous Bluewater Festival, one of the brightest jewels in the bayside
community’s crown, postponed until later in 2020.
The Sandgate and Districts Chamber of Commerce reluctantly announced the postponement from its iconic Good Friday slot to an undecided date in September, in light of the rapid spread of COVID-19 worldwide.
Chamber of Commerce president Bill Gollan said the association was working with the organisers of the also cancelled 2020 Brisbane to Gladstone Yacht Race, an event that usually runs alongside the Bluewater Festival, to secure a date.
“As a Chamber of Commerce, we’re very mindful of the fact that the festival is not just a community event, but it’s about supporting small businesses and family businesses,” Bill said. “We need to do something for them.
“From the people who run the stalls, the rides, the food trucks, even the people who clean the toilets – they’re all small businesses. The artists, the entertainers – they’re all people who work for themselves.”
Bill said he urged people in the meantime to continue to support their local businesses wherever possible in the current extremely challenging economic climate.
“Support your local small business; buy local,” he said. “That’s something we can do as a community to help each other.”
