IT'S being billed as "Lennox Head's answer to Woodstock", the venue of famous concerts of the 1960s.
The Pelicans on Posties, who on July 20 will leave Ballina on postie bikes and ride to Darwin as a fundraiser for Ballina's Biala Special School and the Royal Flying Doctor Service, have organised a fundraising concert to be held at the home of Pelican Bill McInerney on Saturday, June 30.
The concert will feature five local bands - Rokatok, The Mumblers, Willie Hona, Gigas and Coast Road - as well as a spit roast and a licensed bar.
One of the Pelicans, Mark Richards, has more reason than most to not only go on the marathon ride, but to support the concert, as his daughter, 13-year-old Rhiannon is a student at Biala Special School.
He said the teachers and staff at Biala were very special to the parents of students at the school.
"They are constantly struggling for funds and fundraising in their own time," Mark said. "And this is our small way of helping them.
"And without people like (Pelican) Bill McInerney and his family, none of this would have happened."
Pelicans on the Park will be held at 152 Newrybar Swamp Rd from 4pm.
Buses will leave every 30 minutes from the Shaws Bay Hotel, the Tamar St bus interchange and the Lennox Head bus stop starting at 2.30pm.
Tickets cost $40 and are available from Biala Special School, the Shaws Bay Hotel or by phoning Byron Bay Scaffolds on 0415 664 942.
