A range of disability services and organisations will come together in September for the 2021 Options Day event, providing hands-on activities, games and information stalls to the community.

Celebrating its eighth year, Options Day is an event aimed at opening paths to skills and education for people living with disability.

Bundaberg Regional Council's community services portfolio spokesperson Cr Tracey McPhee said Options Day was for people of all abilities, their carers, families and friends.

“This annual event provides opportunities for people of all abilities to explore educational and skills development pathways, meet service providers and have fun,” she said.

“Options Day is the largest local disability event for the region and prides itself on its family-friendly community stalls and businesses showcasing their information and activities. “

Cr McPhee said there was plenty of fun to be had at the event with a range of sensory games and activities available for everyone to get involved in.

“Not only will Options Day feature a great range of giant games, raffles and lucky door prizes, but there will also be live music, face painting and art activities throughout the day,” she said.

“It also doubles as an opportunity for people with disability and their carers to familiarise themselves with some of the community groups that can support them.”

Cr McPhee said potential stallholders were encouraged to register for the event, which would be held at the main pavilion of the Recreational Precinct, Kendalls Road, on Thursday, 16 September.

“The fun will kick off from 9.30 am to 1.30pm with free entry and sausage sizzle available,” she said.
