2014 Burdekin Water Festival


"Glitz, Glam & Movie Mayhem" is the 2014 Festival theme.

Following on from the success of 2013 Tales of Enchantment,  the festival committee have chosen another great theme which will allow all involved to have fun and let their creativity run wild with their interpretation of this brilliant theme. Glitz, Glam and Movie Mayhem is going to see a huge variety of floats and themes at many festival events. 

2014 Burdekin Water Festival planning is well underway and this year promises to be another great celebration for the Burdekin community. The festival will launch this year Friday June 20th and will include all the usual excitement for our Senior Ambassador, Junior Ambassador and Burdekin Bloke entrants. There will be plenty of events happening with the Festival concluding with our Grand Parade and Mardi Gras on Saturday Sept 6th.
