Festival Rides the Wave of Success
Port Macquarie’s inaugural surf, skate and music festival Ride the Wave took over Town Beach last weekend. The charity event drew hundreds of people, keen to check out the action and stroll through the market stalls. Money raised over the three days went to not for profit Make A Difference. They’ll use the funds to fit out a food van that will offer relief to people in the region experiencing homelessness and disadvantage.
