Activities galore will be taking place in BRAG Park next week as part of International Day of People with Disability.
The annual event aims to celebrate all abilities as well as challenge the way people think about disability to help grow a more inclusive Australia.
Bundaberg Regional Council is partnering with local disability service providers on Friday 3 December to host free activities in the park as part of the event.
Community Services portfolio spokesperson Cr Tracey McPhee said it would be a fun and welcoming space open to all.
“BRAG Park will be set up with plenty of games and activities, including giant Jenga, Connect 4 with a sausage sizzle and more,” she said.
“It will be the perfect place to pop by for some socialisation as we get together and enjoy a morning of fun and conversation to celebrate all abilities.
“There's no need to register for the event, just simply show up on the day to take part in the fun!”
International Day of People with Disability is a United Nations observed day aimed at increasing public awareness, understanding and acceptance of people with disability.
Each year events are held throughout the world encouraging individuals, schools, community groups, businesses and organisations to get involved in the celebration.
The 2021 theme is ‘Leadership and Participation of persons with disabilities toward an inclusive, accessible and sustainable post-COVID-19 world'.
The Bundaberg event will be held on Friday 3 December from 9 am to noon in BRAG Park, 1 Barolin Street.
