Festival goers can take in an afternoon workshop at the CWA Hall or Tickle Park and then use their new skills to dance up a storm at Stumers Creek when the sun goes down!  With music by Hot Mambo, Jaleos Flamenco, OKA and Jambezi playing live on the beach at Stumers Creek, fireworks and pyrotechnic skydivers filling the sky and a parade of lanterns passing by, it would be very hard to find a better dance floor!
