The Beat the Heat Festival returns to Cloncurry this weekend with plenty of fun activities planned.
After being cancelled in 2020, the Festival runs from Thursday to Sunday and is an opportunity for locals and tourists to come together and celebrate Cloncurry's mining and pastoral history.
Beat the Heat Festival consists of a Live Cabaret performance, Street Party, Spring Races and Markets.
The fun starts on the Thursday with the CLINTS Come Again Reunion Cabaret.
Showing the Shire Hall it tells the story of the CLINTS, an all-80s, all-cousin, all-Queensland cover band who are making a tilt for Eurovision as Australia's wildcard entry. Lots of laughs are guaranteed with tickets available at Try Booking.
The annual festival street party will return to Scarr Street on the Friday.
