The Burdekin Queensland Week Family Fun and Fitness Expo on Sunday will turn the normally peaceful Anzac Park in Ayr into a centre of activity.
Burdekin Shire Council Economic and Community Development Manager Tony Vaccaro said there would be more than 30 different health, fitness and wellbeing stalls for people to visit at the Expo.
“The Ayr State School markets also have moved to Anzac Park on Sunday and the Burdekin Cruisers Car Club will have a display which will really add to the family atmosphere of the day,” he said.
“There will be lots of free entertainment for children including face-painting, a merry-go-round, jumping castle, rockwall climbing and zorb balls.
“We also have a full come-and-try program running for the duration of the event where people will have access to 17 different activities like family games, kindergym, boxing, tae-kwon-do and fitness classes.
“The Townsville Crocs will be there and hosting a free-throw competition and Captain Active will be on hand to show families how much fun they can have being active.”
Mr Vaccaro said many of the sport, recreational and fitness stallholders were offering event-exclusive specials, deals and competitions.
“This would be a great opportunity to try something new and also save some money,” he said. “If you are looking to ease into a fitness program you can nominate to join the 2014 10,000 Steps Community Challenge or even if you are thinking of starting a new fitness regime why not have a free mini health check which includes blood pressure and BMI testing.”
The Burdekin Queensland Week Family Fun and Fitness Expo will run from 9am until 1pm at Anzac Park, Ayr, on Sunday June 1. The Queensland Government provided $5500 to the Burdekin Shire Council for the Queensland Week activities.
