Cheap family fun with Fireworks, Circus, Sideshow Alley
On 14 May 2016 come along to the Bounty Family Fun Fair. If the family can't wait for the Ekka or the Pine Rivers Show, then this fair will be sure to make them happy.
With 10 family and thrill rides and unlimited ride passes the kids will love you for taking them to the fair, and so will your wallet. Entry to the fair is only $2 each, and unlimited ride passes are $15 for under 5's and $25 for school age if you buy online (on the day purchases are $25/$35). Single ride tickets are $5 each.
The Bounty Boulevard State School is putting on a really good family afternoon at the fair. There is something for everyone. Who doesn't love wandering around markets at that time of day when the sun is going down and there's just starting to be a chill in the air, that time between needing a hat and putting on a jumper when you can feel the start of winter and there's excitement in the air. With this fun fair being in May, it's the perfect weather for a great family afternoon. Hot coffee and international food vendors will give a welcome warm and tasty dinner while you browse the markets.
If you can tear the kids off the rides, then there's sideshow alley to light up the night with all its bright lights and colour, and showbags galore.
As if that isn't enough to keep the family entertained throughout the day, the organisers of this fair have gone all out and organised live entertainment and circus performances.
Still not convinced to go? What about fireworks to finish the day? There is something for every member of the family here, full of entertainment and easy on the wallet. In support of the school, if you're a young family living on the northside, this is one for your diary.
This mini-Ekka will be held at the Bounty Boulevard State School on Saturday 14 May 2016
