Let the Crush begin

THE school holidays have ended but the Crush Festival has just begun, with many praising the first-ever News- Mail Children's Day.

Bundaberg Regional Council cultural activities manager Andrew Gill said yesterday was a great way to end the booked-out BRAG school holiday program with the start of a new event.

“It went really well,” he said. “We had 150 people there, with 95 kids.”

Val Hunt took her seven-year-old grandchild, Charlotte Baldry, to the children's day.

“Charlotte absolutely loved it,” she said.

Ms Hunt said the duo took advantage of fossil making, a free movie and folding toy money into T-shirts.

“It was like magic,” Ms Hunt said.
