The Redcliffe Festival has drawn to a close for 2014, proving to be a great few days and night of entertainment at multiple locations on the peninsula. The beachside locations enabled the inclusion of activities in the air and on the water that complemented the usual festival fair of market stalls, music, children’s entertainment, cultural and historical displays, carnival rides, food and fireworks.
After a rollicking opening on Friday night with The Choirboys, Daryl Braithwaite and Mark Seymour and the Undertow, along with Justice Crew for the younger set, Saturday and Sunday featured plenty more good music on the main stage from the likes of Rawr Vanity, Fieu, Nat Dunn and Running in the Shadows.
There was Superboat racing on the water and aerobatic displays in the air, as well as all the colour of Kitefest, with some spectacular kites proving particularly challenging in the strong winds whipped up on Sunday.
The multiple locations – with plenty of free activities and entertainment on Redcliffe Parade and Jetty – did make partaking in all aspects of the festival impossible, but overall the weekend was enjoyable and seemed a great success for event organisers and the myriad sponsors who supported the festival.
