Residents will have the chance to meet Les “Lock’n’Load” Sherrington at this year’s Burdekin Queensland Week Family Fun and Fitness Expo.
Burdekin Shire Council Community Development Manager Tony Vaccaro said the boxing champ would be just one of the drawcards for the day.
“We also have about 30 different health, fitness and wellbeing stalls lined up at the Expo, so there will be plenty for everyone to do,” he said.
“There will be lots of free entertainment for children including face-painting, a merry-go-round, a pirate ship, jumping castle, rock wall climbing and zorb balls.
“Captain Active, who makes exercising fun for the kids, is making another appearance this year.
“For mums and dads there are massages, fitness, cars and solar astronomy.
Mr Vaccaro said some exhibitors would have come-and-try programs running for the duration of the event, where people would have access to different activities like games, boxing, martial arts and fitness classes.
“This is a great way to test the waters of a new exercise regime and take up the chance to save a few dollars,” he said.
The Burdekin Queensland Week Family Fun and Fitness Expo will run from 9am until 1pm at Anzac Park, Ayr, on Sunday, June 7.
The Burdekin Shire Council received a $6500 Queensland Government grant to host the Queensland Week event.
