Sweet Days, Hot Nights Festival organisers are encouraging locals to pull out their phones and snap a selfie with festival mascot Mick to win.
Organisers are holding a ‘Take a Pic with Mick’ competition with entrants going in the running to win a $100 Burdekin Gift Card.
Burdekin Shire Council Mayor Lyn McLaughlin said life-size cut-outs of the akubra-wearing, guitar-playing hand cane cutter will be appearing around the Shire in the lead up to the highly anticipated event.
“With less than two weeks to go until the 2019 Sweet Days, Hot Nights Festival, our festival mascot Mick is eager to explore the sites of our Shire,” she said.
“If you find Mick, snap a selfie and upload your photo to Instagram or Facebook with the hashtag #SweetDaysHotNights to go in the draw to win.”
The Take a Pic with Mick competition will run from today until Saturday 1 June.
The Sweet Days, Hot Nights Festival, presented by Pacific Hydro, is a celebration of our rich agricultural region and our relaxed lifestyle.
The 2019 festival includes the First Fire (Thursday 30 May), Burdekin Cultural Fair (Friday 31 May) and Australian Hand Cane Cutting (Saturday 1 June) events.
