Fun and food fair game at community festival

FUN, food and family will be the focal point for this year’s Lauderdale Community Festival, which is now gearing up for its sixth instalment.

The annual community event will be held on Friday 19 May on the Lauderdale Primary School oval from 3pm to 6pm.

There will be a wide range of rides and attractions for families of all ages, including the Gee Whizzer, Round Up, jumping castle, side-show games, children’s boat ride and a giant inflatable worm.

A variety of community stalls will also be available showcasing fine food, wine and non-alcoholic beverages, cakes, plants and lucky dips.

Lauderdale Primary School association chair Simon Bailey said the school festival was now well established and acted as a major community festival event.

“We have expanded on the school’s community involvement to include local businesses with a mix of food, drinks, entertainment and novelties – all focused on the family and healthy living lifestyle our greater Eastern Shore region offers,” he said.

“We are continuing to build on previous festivals by adding increased entertainment that extends into the early evening, offering parents and members of the wider community the opportunity to stop by on the way home to relax and enjoy themselves with the school community.”

Patrons can also look forward to increased entertainment and activities including the addition of a snake pit, local displays and a choo choo train ride.

The event is open to the general public and visitors from outside the school community are also welcome to attend.

Unlimited ride wristbands will be available for purchase at $25 each.
