Fun and Games for Free
Kingston City Council has pulled out all the stops for their new community event in Clayton South. Due to debut this year on Saturday 19th October, the Spring Fair is a fun, free and family-friendly event aimed at local members of the community and their families. The Spring Fair will be held at Keeley Park on Main Road in Clayton South and will run from noon until 5pm.
There will be rides for the kids, as well as roving entertainers and performances from local artists. Families can participate in activities run by community groups such as Disc Golf (much like traditional golf but played with a Frisbee-type disc instead of a ball and clubs) and Paint the Town Read – a literacy initiative which encourages families in all cultures to embrace talking, singing, rhyming and reading. Kids can also try their hand at a range of sports including cricket and soccer.
For lunch, you will be spoilt for choice with a range of food vendors on hand, or you're welcome to bring your own picnic or barbeque. Picnic furniture and blankets will be available for use so there's no need to lug everything along with you (my husband will be pleased about this…).
If you want to leave the car at home, Kingston City Council is even putting on free shuttle buses to service the event. The shuttle buses will leave Clarinda Community Centre at 12.10pm, 12.40pm, 1.10pm, 1.40pm, 2.40pm, 3.10pm, 3.40pm and 4.10pm. Buses from Westall Community Hub will depart ten minutes after each of the above times. To return, the same buses will leave Keeley Park every half hour from 12.30pm until 4pm. If you fancy a day of free entertainment, spring on over to Clayton South and check it out.
