As the days get cooler and winter approaches it's tempting to stay inside and hibernate until the warmer weather returns. However, there are some great events on this month that'll make you want to rug up and take the family outside, and the best part is that they're all free.
On Friday the 4th of May, the popular Geelong After Dark event will return. Starting at 6pm, the event will take place in Central Geelong and will include glowing pieces of art, live music, short performances and more.
The theme for 2018 is 'Earth', and the program includes:
On the 20th of May, Geelong Gallery will be hosting a Family Fun Day which will include a couple of fantastic activities for children. In the first session (10am-11:30am), participants will be able to make their own book cover using collage techniques.
The second session is suitable for children aged between 5-10, and involves helping artists Isobel Knowles and Cat Rabbit recreate a 3D cloud town.
Geelong One Fire Reconciliation Group will be holding a free event in Johnstone Park from 10am-3pm on Sunday 27th of May. The organisers welcome everyone to come along and celebrate the Aboriginal communities of Geelong.
