'Biggest crowd' at Oyster Festival
Almost 30,000 people packed the Ettalong Beach Foreshore on Sunday, November 9, for the 14th annual Brisbane Water Oyster Festival.
Peninsula Chamber of Commerce president Mr Matthew Wales said: "This year was by far the biggest crowd we have experienced and clearly shows that locals and visitors love to come to Ettalong Beach and enjoy our oysters, seafood, wine and entertainment.
"The weather was fantastic and the crowds responded accordingly," said Mr Wales.
"Stall holders and local businesses did a roaring trade with the Ettalong Beach Diggers packed with visitors.
"The Festival was boosted by the recent completion of the Ettalong Beach Foreshore upgrade which added a new dimension to the event allowing families to picnic as well as attend the Oyster Festival.
"And no Oyster Festival would be complete without the traditional How Many Oysters You Can Eat in 30 Seconds."
