If you are thinking of going back to school, or just want to get a taste of the school atmosphere again, then the Redeemer Fair is something you should check out in late October.
Hailed as the largest annual local community event in Rochedale, the Redeemer Fair is a great event for both students and parents. There is plenty to see and do, including stacks of rides, Zorb Balls on water, basketball throw, face painting, knock 'em downs, an animal farm, mechanical bull, and of course, the classic dunk the teacher, plus much more. There will be plenty of food and drinks available as well, with a bbq, fairy floss, snow cones, and food stalls as well.
First started as Market Day in the early '80s, it has grown bigger and better each year, with more and more people in attendance. 'It is estimated that around 8000 people attend the Redeemer Fair every year'. And this year, the organisers are confident many more will attend. One of the great things about this event is that you do not have to be a student (or parent/guardian of a student) who attends Redeemer College. On the contrary, most people who attend are an assortment of local churches and community members who just want to come along and have a great time out.
Entry is free to the public, although if you want to have a great time on the rides, or take some goodies home with you, it is advisable that you bring some money with you. There is also an opportunity to win some great prizes at the fair, so come prepared. To go on all the rides, all you have to pay is $30 for a Ride Arm Band, which can be purchased at the Redeemer Fair. There will be a great line up of entertainment all evening long, culminating with a fireworks display at the end of the fair.
