This can include but not limited to children’s rides, face painting, arts and crafts and local clubs 'come and try’ activities, family friendly businesses, social enterprises, daycares, disability services, and much much more! .

We also hold ‘The Teddy Bears Parade’ that provides an additional attraction for our regions smallest members of the community with parents, grandparents and the broader family support. Keep an eye out for Fred the Flourish Family Fun Day Bear who heads up the fun.
