As you can see from the lineup, it's packed chockas with activities and entertainment. Eastlakes Shopping Centre will be offering $5 taster plates if you're feeling a little peckish, plus there'll be a sausage sizzle throughout the day from 2-7pm. Sit back and relax with the Lawn Library supplied by the Bayside Library which includes reading and storytime. For the garden enthusiasts, why not join the Gardening Workshop at the community gardens of the community centre.
Get tips on how to start up a garden and learn about planting seedlings, and correcting soil at the portable community garden. The Tech Tent will also be set up for all of you who'd love to have the team of volunteers help solve your technical problems, so bring in your laptop etc. Need to relax after all that tech talk? There's Tai Chi to move your body to, to unwind and chill. This event has thought of everything!
If you're feeling energetic, take part in good old-fashioned old school games and have some good old fashioned competitive fun! There's the 3 legged race, the egg and spoon race, the bean toss, sack races, target golf competitions, and knock the can down. There are other games like hula hoop, giant Jenga and more. Want more? Get into the drumming workshop for some rhythm and beat.
Last but not least, applications for the Dog Show Comps are still open and will be taken on the day as well, so register your pooch as per poster above. Best dressed and lookalikes win dog food and accessories
