Trail fun for children at Chinese New Year celebrations


The Chinese Zodiac Animal Trail fun begins from 3pm to 5.30pm this Saturday.

A treasure hunt-themed activity will keep kids entertained for hours at the upcoming Chinese New Year Celebrations this weekend.

The Chinese Zodiac Animal Trail, featuring multiple activity points in the CBD, will be a highlight for children.

Bundaberg Regional Council’s community and cultural services portfolio spokesperson Cr Judy Peters said the trail included 12 stations, with each representing an animal in the Chinese Zodiac.

“Children can complete an activity at each station to get a stamp in their passport,” Cr Peters said.

“Once all 12 activities are completed, the stamped passport should be returned to the Zodiac Trail station in front of the Moncrieff Entertainment Centre to collect a prize.”

Cr Peters said the Chinese Zodiac Animal Trail fun would be held from 3pm to 5.30pm this Saturday, 16 February.

“This fantastic activity will be an informative venture for children as they learn all about the symbolism behind Chinese New Year,”  Cr Peters said.

“Be sure to get there early for the best chance to complete the trail!”

Saturday’s  festivities will also feature a lantern parade at 8.15pm and an amazing array of crackers and fireworks at 8.45pm.

“Bundaberg’s CBD comes alive with Asian food and market stalls, lion and dragon dancing and a tea ceremony and more,” Cr Peters said.

“This is a perfect event for the whole family to enjoy!”

Celebrations will run from Saturday, 16 February, 3pm to 9pm at Buss Park and the Moncrieff Entertainment Centre.
