Bundaberg Baptist Church is running a Free Family Fun Day on Saturday, 12 October with the aim to take the financial burden off local families.
Free Family Fun Day co-ordinator Sean Harper everything at the event would be free, from parking, rides and even the food.
Sean said it’s the second year the Free Family Fun Day would be held after more than 1500 people attended last year.
“It was a great day last year and we had some wonderful community feedback on the event,” Sean said.
“We aim to provide a great day out for families without the financial burden.
“Everything is free from the food to the rides; we want this to be a gift and blessing to our local community.”
The free activities include a super slide, rock wall, merry-go-round, laser skirmish, petting zoo, puppets, superhero characters, food, live music and more.
Help for families doing it tough
Sean said the event was the church’s gift to the Bundaberg community and especially people doing it tough.
“With high unemployment and droughts affecting our farmers, we know there are a great many throughout our local community who may not be able to afford to attend shows, fun days and other local events,” Sean said.
“We at Bundy Baptist thought what better way to follow the example of generosity shown to us by Jesus’ spirit of giving than by demonstrating his love in action by serving our local community in this fun way.
“The Free Family Fun Day is not a ‘religious’ event, but simply our way of showing love and kindness to all those who attend.”
The event will be held on Saturday, 12 October from 10am to 2pm at 14 Fitzgerald Street, Bundaberg.
“This event could not be possible with the help of a number of local businesses and the Bundaberg Regional Council and we want to thank them for their support,” Sean said.
