One of Mount Isa's more beloved events returns this weekend after a year's absence.
The Rock Pop Mime Show Mount Isa has been running since 1990 as a project of the Apex Club of Mount Isa and it remains Apex's signature event in the city after turning 30 in 2019.
Apex said they had to cancel the show last year due to COVID but they were "rocking it" this year and looking forward to "amazing talented and totally fabulous performers" taking the stage at Tony White Oval on Friday night.
Hundreds of children from around the region will perform at the 31st annual Rock Pop Mime Show on Friday October 15 at the Tony White Oval.
Rock Pop Mime president Rob Davis said preparations were in full swing for a big night with 15 acts taking to the stage from Mount Isa and Cloncurry.
"A lot of people have put a lot of work into it," Mr Davis said.
"Everyone is welcome to come, it is $5 entry."
