The highlight of Family Week for the Harlaxton and Westbrook communities will undoubtedly be the Harlaxton Family Fun Day, and the Westbrook Family Fun Day.
The Harlaxton event will run from 12pm - 4pm on Sunday October 19 at Harlaxton Park, Gleeson Crescent.
This free fun day is one of the most popular yearly events for the Harlaxton community, with over 400 people attending last years event.
“We had more parents and teenagers than ever before come along and support the event,” said organiser Tiff Spary about last years fun day. “It was great to see so many families take the time out to spend time together.”
This year there is plenty to keep the family busy, with a jumping castle, bungee run, skateboarding workshop, face painting, sausage sizzle, gigantic sand pit, picnic games and even a police display.
Closing out Family Week will be the Westbrook Family Fun Day at Centenary Park, Barwick Street, Westbrook. The fun begins at 10:30am, Sunday October 26 and entry is a gold coin.
3000 people are expected to attend the biennial event.
“Through support from local businesses, franchises, Council, clubs, and organisations, the day offers a great opportunity for families to come and celebrate Westbrook,” said organiser Clayton Rogers.
“There is music from a mobile stage including jazz, blues, and local artists. There will be rides, jumping castles, face painting, vendors, train rides, food vendors, stalls, competitions, prizes, and as much fun as you can have!”
