Free family fun at Active Fest this weekend

Sturt Park is the place to be this Saturday, with families invited for a fun-filled day of free games, sport, and other activities for this year’s Active Fest, starting at 10am and winding up at 2pm.

Laser tag, league tag, hockey, badminton, table tennis, tai-chi, active workshops, demonstrations, stalls, and even a colour run, will keep you active, while others may choose to sit back, relax, and enjoy tunes by local musicians, Bodee and Rylee McAllister.

Supported by the YMCA, 2DryFM, Creative Community Concepts, Landcare, Service NSW, and local businesses and charity groups, Active Fest provides a space for community engagement, connection, conversation, entertainment, and activities for all ages and abilities.

2DryFM will be broadcasting live from the event, with the Lions Club and Y’s Men’s Club putting on a BBQ, and coffee available from the Giovanni and Co coffee van.

Council’s Community Development Coordinator, Rachel Merton, said she hoped plenty of locals would take advantage of the free family event.

“This is the second Active Fest we’ve held, and it provides an opportunity for the whole community to be more physically active, try new activities, and also to get information about local groups and sports,” said Ms Merton.

“As always, we’d like to thank all our partners and community groups for their support in providing this event to the families of Broken Hill.”
