YEPPOON Lions are incredibly excited to provide a growing program of local entertainment and activities in the heart of Yeppoon for the community to enjoy on Sunday, October 11.

The day begins with Pinefest Street Fiesta with the James Street Bazaar from 9.30am to 4.30pm, offering an even larger variety than last year of stalls selling both local crafts and other goods.

The Normanby Street food markets and entertainment zone from 9.30am to 4.30pm will provide delectable international cuisine and plenty of rides and amusements for the kids and young at heart.

Pinefest spokesman Nigel Hutton said Yeppoon Lions were proud to be sponsoring free face painting, a jumping castle and the ever popular petting zoo to help ensure every family could come along and enjoy the day.

"The Ray White Yeppoon Pinefest Street parade will journey up and down James St from 10.30am sharing the best entries in the float competition, with Elmo leading the parade and the Capricorn Silver Band will be marching and performing in Beaman Park from 11.30am," he said.

"Yeppoon's fashion houses will be holding a fashion parade on the stage mid-afternoon.

"Beaman Park will be buzzing with the stage offering a full day program of entertainment including many local acts including Battle of the Bands winners Enchridon, Twinzz, DD Cooper and the flashtones, Indaba, The Dune Surf Band, Aussie Cheer Squad and Flat & Sharp with Jason Rooks and Nathan McDonald.

"We want every member of our community to come out and enjoy the Pinefest festivities as we welcome back spring on the Capricorn Coast."
