Mascot makes first appearance at park
BUNDABERG Regional Council’s Flourish Family Fun Day was a great start to the school holidays.
Held at Boreham Park, Avenell Heights, community and cultural services portfolio spokeswoman Cr Judy Peters said the event was a terrific way to get the entire family outdoors and enjoy some quality time together.
“There really is something for everyone at the Flourish Family Fun Day, with free activities and family-focused information stalls,” Cr Peters said.
Kids enjoyed rides, activities and the annual teddy bear’s picnic.
Cr Peters said while the youngsters enjoyed themselves, parents had the opportunity to browse information stalls on a range of family services.
The event was held in conjunction with the Welcome Baby Celebrations.
“Welcome Baby is about celebrating the youngest members of our community and formally introduce your baby to the Bundaberg region. All participating babies received a Baby Loves Bundaberg pack and an acknowledgement certificate signed and presented by the mayor,” Cr Peters said.
The Flourish Family Fun Day mascot – a walking, talking, cuddly bear – welcomed the youngsters, who can help him to find a name on the day.
It was the mascot’s first official public appearance.
