A ninja obstacle course, face painting and the popular Teddy Bear Parade are just some of the exciting activities that will make up the 2022 Flourish Family Fun Day in June.
Boreham Park will host the popular event with local families invited along for the fun on Thursday 30 June from 9 am to midday.
Bundaberg Regional Council's Community Services portfolio spokesperson Cr Tracey McPhee said this year's theme, Trash to Treasure, would focus on recycling, upcycling and everything pre-loved.
“Our Trash to Treasure theme will highlight all of the benefits of recycling and reusing, to show our younger generations just how important it is for our environment,” she said.
“There will be plenty of activities and stations set up to take our young participants through the steps of recycling and to show them how to turn trash into something special!”
Cr McPhee said the 2022 Flourish Family Fun Day was expected to be bigger and better than ever before after Covid restrictions had eased.
“2021 saw between 2500 and 3000 members of the Bundaberg community attend the successful event, with over 50 stall holders,” she said.
“This year's Flourish Family Fun Day is set to include a huge program and even more stalls on site.
“Whether you are looking for day care options, NDIS information, health services and everything in between, Flourish Family Fun Day can link you to what you need.”
Teddy Bear Parade, Welcome Baby part of Flourish Family Fun Day
Divisional spokesperson Cr John Learmonth said families would not be the only visitors to Boreham Park for Flourish, with plenty of teddies also invited along.
“The popular Teddy Bear Parade is set to make a return and all teddies great and small are welcome to attend Flourish Family Fun Day,” he said.
“This year we will have prizes for most-loved bear, brightest bear and best trash and treasure bear so don't forget to bring along your best bear friend for a great day out at Flourish!”
Cr Learmonth said Welcome Baby would also make a return.
“Our Welcome Baby celebration is an opportunity to formally introduce and welcome new babies as valued members of the Bundaberg Region community,” he said.
“Each participating baby will receive a ‘Baby Loves Bundaberg' pack and an acknowledgement certificate signed by the Bundaberg Mayor, a small gift and their very own Welcome Baby teddy.
“The ceremony is a great opportunity to create a sense of belonging in the region, particularly for those with new families and for new residents.”
