The popular environmental event, Logan Eco Action Festival (LEAF), will be held on Sunday, 2nd June 2013 to celebrate World Environment Day. Proudly hosted by Logan City Council, this annual event will be bigger and better this year, with a greater focus on family-friendly events and activities.
The event, which is held in the convenient location of Griffith University - Logan Campus, is designed to generate awareness about current environmental issues in the community. There will be a wide range of local and national environmental exhibitors onsite. Many of the exhibitors will be promoting different ways we can reduce household waste and food waste, which is the main theme of this year's event. Additionally, there will be a range of eco-friendly products for sale also.
In addition to the stalls, families can participate in a range of activities and festivities throughout the event day. For children, there is face painting, live wildlife shows, a bug display, a rock wall, a giant slide, segways, henna tattoos and science experiments, while for parents, there will be an enjoyable afternoon of live music performances by up-and-coming musicians and bands. This year, Mark Lowndes from Australia's Got Talent, Brisbane based country urban outfit, Will Day and the Alibis and LEAF favourite, The Twine, will all be performing on the main stage. The best part about it is, it's all free!
LEAF is free for all to attend. It is Logan City's biggest environmental event and demonstrates how we all can become environmentally responsible and live more sustainably. It is a fun, educational event for all who attend and also makes for a great family day out.
