Have another day off due to the Easter holidays? This Monday head towards Ipswich's Queen Park to celebrate its 20th year of the Easter Monday Fun Day.
Easter Monday Fun Day will certainly have activities that will please everyone. The park itself is already a joy - with a zoo that has many different animals as well as a range of different playground contraptions that both adults and children can enjoy. The festival will certainly bring it up a notch - it will have carnival rides, refreshments, balloons, over 50 interactive activities and my favourite fairy floss – because who doesn't like the sugary goodness! The festival will also have all-day live entertainment, a huge sausage sizzle, free food and a range of see and do activities such as bracelet making.
For the teenagers there is a Too Loud Zone which will have their own youth stage that will rock off with live bands, dance and drama performances, carnival rides and plenty of sweets galore such as snow cones and the traditional American hot dogs.
The younger ones will also be dazzled with their own KidZone. The KidZone consists of their own live entertainers, outdoor adventure challenges, craft activities and an animal farm.
The best part to Easter Monday Fun Day, is that everything is free to the public. With the help and love of a non-profit community organization Ipswich Awakening, trying to reconnect the Ipswich community. Easter Monday Fun Day is just not a day to go to a festival which everything is free, but to actually spend time with your family and community.
The festival begins approximately 10am and finishes around 4pm. As the festival usually gets quite busy, often having a crowd of about 15,000 to 20,000 – it would be best to arrive at Queens Park earlier to find a parking if needed. Although there are various ways to get to Queens Park, having a train (Ipswich Station) and bus stations relatively close by.
So if you're thinking of a fun outing to take your family or partner – head towards Queens Park for a full day of action pack fun.
