Blues festival set to be a huge hit with Mark Gable

McMAHONS Point will turn a shade of blue next weekend.

A blues festival will be held at Blues Point Reserve on October 10 and the Harbour Bridge will be lit up in blue for the event, which will raise money for national depression initiative beyondblue.

The inaugural Blues Point Blues Festival started off as a simple wish to raise money for a charity and has grown into a large music event, with thousands of people expected to attend the free festival.

It began about a year ago when McMahons Point resident Lesley French decided she wanted to do something to give back to the community.

She teamed up with friend Jenny Curtis and together they started planning.

Once the idea started to take shape, the lower North Shore community came to help.
