Mackay Scottish Bluewater Fling
Set in tropical Queensland, the Mackay Scottish Bluewater Fling is an annual free outdoor community event celebrating Mackay’s Scottish heritage. Visiting pipe bands join the Mackay & District Pipe Band, Highland dancers and the Hullabaloo folk band for an afternoon of Scottish music, song and dance. At dusk, the performers move to one of the Clubs where a lively Ceilidh follows.
The Fling is part of the Mackay Festival of Arts Fringe program which starts on 18 July with a Food and Wine Day and goes for a week packed with shows, activities and entertainment.
