Free beach picnic party day
The Coastal Twist Festival's "Life's a Beach" free beach picnic party day will be held at Umina Beach from 10am on Saturday, October 1.
"This is all about ocean air and salty waters," said festival creative director Ms Glitta Supernova.
"Let's enjoy the Aussie outdoors, connection with visitors, friend's families and collide that into sport, health and culture.
"This is about safe outdoor spaces, having fun, seeing old friends, and making new ones as we soak in good vibes, high fives and diversity as the norm.
"Bring your own chairs and sun-wise caps, rugs and setup for the day
"Pack your hamper, brolly, towels, whatever it takes to make you comfy and happy."
Ms Supernova said those interested could book for a free morning beach yoga session with Umina Beach Yoga or for Pride in Fitness Strength Training by trainer Thomas Ellis.
She said the entertainment line-up for the day included DJ Second Husband playing timeless house and techno for the sand dancefloor.
Live on the beach stage would be Etcetera Etcetera, Rupauls Drag race down under; Ruby Slippers, Burlesque Baddie and Drag Disrupter; Cassy Judy - musician and proud trans woman; and Diva D-Lish.
The Central Coast Ukulele Club will also play a set.
Ginava and Roundabout Circus will give a roving spectacle performance.
There will be displays by Life Savers with Pride, and storytime with author Ms Louise Lambeth reading her book Annie and the Waves.
