Fraser Coast Streets alive with artists of all kinds
THE Fraser Coast's first Street Life Festival has been hailed a success by an exhausted organiser.
Arts councillor Phil Truscott was "absolutely stuffed" yesterday after a big weekend of performances and entertainment.
The weekend had the Fraser Coast soaked in buskers, chalk artists and entertainers.
A highlight for Cr Truscott was the 24 players in the busking competition held in Maryborough yesterday.
"I don't know how we're going to reduce it down to eight or ten because there's so many talented people," he said.
Judges will have their work cut out with the grand final at 3pm next Sunday at the Brolga Theatre.
Other events also pleased Cr Truscott, who said the event could only get better.
"Yesterday was the first and only wearable arts competition and that was just excellent," he said. "If I'm still in power next year we'll tweak it.
"I've never heard so many positive comments in my whole career as a councillor."
Tickets are still available from the Brolga for this Friday's Rock Icons Dinner at Gatakers Landing.
Attendees can join band members from Australian Crawl and Men at Work for a meal.
