It’s all about food for the first day of the festival with the River Walk Dine event. This makes it a great time to pamper yourself throughout the day before heading out to the river to indulge in some delicious food and a romantic, tranquil atmosphere. Take someone special or meet up with some friends—there will be a huge range of food stalls set up for you to try. This will be running from 4pm ‘til 10pm, so you’ll have plenty of time to get down and try some amazing local cuisine.

Spanning across locations such as Sandy Pauper Beach, the Boardwalk and the Criterion Hotel-Motel, you’ll find a lot on offer. Head down to any of these venues from 4pm to 10pm for some beach volleyball, food stalls, live music, markets and arts displays—not to mention a fireworks display at 7pm. Bring the kids down and have an amazing time sampling the local culture!
