Cairns Ukulele Festival is inviting all ukulele players to join Cairns Festival 2016 Grand Parade by becoming a part of the ’World’s Largest Ukulele Marching Band’.
Nicky Bomba, Festival artist and Melbourne Ska Orchestra front man, will lead the band creating a colourful spectacle that will wind its way along the Cairns Esplanade from 5:30pm. With spectators gathering in their thousands, organisers are expecting 20,000 people will line the Esplanade to cheer on a creative collection of floats showcasing Cairns, its lifestyle and magical surroundings that define the community’s sense of place.
The ‘World’s Largest Ukulele Marching Band will exemplify the true Cairns spirit of colour, happy go lucky attitude, Tropicana, fun and inclusiveness.
(Ukulele Clubs performing during the Community Concert Day, your band leader shall be contacted to coordinate logistics and timings)
