This Saturday, the 6th of Sept, Blazing Saddles will host Cairns Festivals FIELDS OF FIRE event for the second year in a row!!!
After an overwhelming response to last year’s event Fields of Fire – Mario’s Burn is back, bigger and better, with plenty of food stalls, more entertainment and ticketed to avoid disappointment. As the sun sinks over the mountains Yorkey’s
Knob will be ablaze with light - literally. Fields of Fire – Mario’s Burn reignites our agricultural past with a traditional cane burn. While flames rising over the paddocks was a common sight a generation ago modern farming practices have done away with the spectacle that was once an iconic symbol of the Far North. Bringing the tradition back to life, for one night at least, Fields of Fire-Mario’s Burn is a family friendly event with a raft of supporting activities. From 3pm the main stage revs up with the Hillbilly Goats and Aria-nominated country icons Kevin Bennett and The Flood. 3-6pm the Doyle Family Fun Show will entertain with music, face painting and fun. Pony rides and the mechanical bull will cater for both ends of riding skill while families can enjoy animal interaction with Zoo to You or relax by the camping fire. The day will culminate in the cane burn on sunset complete with pyrotechnics Cane farming monitoring a burning cane field
