Pokémon Go players will have plenty of chances to catch new creatures when food truck festival Eats and Beats rolls into the Berrinba Wetlands this Friday.

A Pokémon Go walk will start in the wetlands from 4pm, finishing at 5pm, in time for the opening of Eats and Beats.

Participants in the walk are encouraged to wear their team colours, but if you don’t have a team yet, don’t worry — you’ll reach Level 5 in no time.

A charging kiosk will be available for Pokémon trainers who need to recharge their devices, and those all-important lures will be out to attract Pokémon throughout both events.

Councillor Laurie Smith, who serves as Logan’s City Image chairperson, says the Pokémon craze will add a new dimension to the popular Eats and Beats event.

“Staff have created a Pokémon map of Berrinba Wetlands so people playing the game can discover collectables around the site on the night,” she says.

“Those who have no idea what Pokémon are, and that includes me, don’t need to be playing the game to have fun at Eats and Beats.

“We’ll still have a fantastic selection of food trucks to satisfy almost any craving and some terrific live music from local musicians, too.

“One of the advantages of having Eats and Beats at Berrinba Wetlands is that the site has plenty of free parking for people. That said, it’s always good to beat the dinner time rush by getting there early.

“The early bird gets the worm. Or in this case, the Pokémon.”

The Pokémon Walk will be held at Berrinba Wetlands (Wayne Goss Drive, Browns Plains) this Friday 29 July from 4pm to 5pm. All ages are welcome, but Pokémon trainers under the age of 16 will need to be accompanied by an adult. Eats and Beats will be held at the same venue from 5pm to 9pm. Admission is free.
