Celebrating in a big way, this fun filled, thanksgiving will have entertainment that's let-your-hair-down family fun. A family that plays together stays together they say, so get in on good old-fashioned traditional games like tug-of-war, the whole family can participate in. Culturally you won't be disappointed with authentic food stalls, entertainment, cooking demonstrations, floor art (kolam) and more. Kids can enjoy magic shows, fun rides, and lots of other free activities, face painting, tattoos and the likes.
If you fancy yourself a bit of an artist, the painting competitions are fair game. Immerse yourself in a day of cultural celebrations, with a spectacular fireworks finale kicking off at 8.30pm. The summer sky will ignite in a flurry of colours and sparkle. Your best vantage points are Education Drive, Springfield Markets, Robelle Cafe, USQ Springfield and Mountain Creek Bridge.
