Get Ready to Limbo Port Douglas

Port Douglas Carnivale event organisers have this week announced the addition of an international circus cabaret to the lineup of events in the Wonderland Spiegeltent, which will be perched in Dixie Park as the hub of Carnivale from May 12 until May 22.
Limbo is a fiery fusion of brilliant musicians and sideshow, circus and dance performers that combine to create an adults-only cabaret like no other. Featuring a stunning international cast including Coney Island’s infamous sword swallower and exquisite French-Canadian aerialist, Evelyne Allard, the show whisks the audience into a world of jaw-dropping contortion, gut-churning aerial acrobatics and staggering illusions. Critically-acclaimed the world over, this is one show not to be missed.

During the lead-in and throughout Carnivale weekend, the Wonderland Spiegeltent will also house performances from comedy superstar Jimeoin, enigmatic trio The Kransky Sisters, Blues superstars Lloyd Spiegel and Big Daddy Wilson and a lively program of live music, sizzling burlesque and sidecracking comedy.

Organiser Melissa Head from Knockout Events said the aim was to create a non-stop hub of live entertainment that brings together some of the most exciting national, international and local performers currently touring. “Limbo is such an exciting and well-suited addition to Carnivale – this show has travelled the world – apparently Madonna saw it twice – and now we have it coming to Port. We’re thrilled and hope the locals and visitors will enjoy this sensational show,” she said.

Carnivale weekend will also feature the Friday Long Lunch, Paradise on a Plate, the Carnivale Wonders of the Tropics Street Parade on Friday night and a Family Beach Day Party at Four Mile Beach on Saturday May 21. The inaugural Port On A Fork Food & Wine Festival will feature food fit for the most discerning foodie on Saturday night plus music from Joe Camilleri & Black Sorrows. For Art lovers, The Wonder of the Tropics Container Art in the Park exhibit will run for the entire weekend. Sunday you’ll find the Port Douglas Fisherman’s Village Seafood & Music Festival in full swing, complete with blues music and buckets of prawns, and then watch the sunset at Rex Smeal Park on a picnic blanket, with fish & chips and live music.
