A petting zoo will delight children at this month’s Eats & Beats event in Berrinba.

It will be a feast for the senses at the Berrinba Wetlands when Eats & Beats returns to the popular parkland this month.

Enticing scents, bright lights and upbeat music will set the mood, while a host of food trucks will provide the flavour.

And as a special treat, children will get to enjoy a free petting zoo.

This month’s Eats & Beats was to be held at Logan River Parklands, however repairs to the parklands and playground are ongoing after flooding earlier this year.

City Lifestyle Chair Councillor Laurie Koranski said the decision to move the event to Berrinba was made in the interests of community safety and enjoyment.

“Every two months, our travelling Eats & Beats festival is a welcome opportunity for City of Logan families to unwind and enjoy an entertaining evening out,” Cr Koranski said.

“While we look forward to bringing the event back to Logan River Parklands soon, in the meantime, we encourage everyone to appreciate some great food and music in the serene surrounds of the Berrinba Wetlands.”

Division 5 Councillor Jon Raven said the wetlands would be an ideal backdrop for yet another feel-good Eats & Beats.

“We are excited to be bringing two City of Logan favourites – the Berrinba Wetlands and Eats & Beats – together once again,” Cr Raven said.

“I can’t wait to see people of all ages flocking to the wetlands, for a night of great food and music.”

City of Logan songstress Briana Dinsdale will perform.

Also in the music line-up is recent Queensland Music Award youth winner Paulina Schuemann, singer songwriter Kaypo and R&B band Dezzie D and the Stingrays.

Eats & Beats starts at 5pm on Friday, August 26.

The entrance to the Berrinba Wetlands is on Wayne Goss Drive, Berrinba.
