This Sunday, families will gather at the Young Aquatic Centre for the annual Young’s Family Fun Duck Day event.
The event is held every year to raise funds for the Georgina Josephine Foundation. The Foundation aims to raise awareness and develop support services for families affected by Low-Speed Vehicle Runover (LSVR) accidents.
The Family Fun Day is a great way to spend time with the family, with loads of entertainment and activities for all ages.
The Toddler Pool (0-4 years) will feature a Lucky Duck Grab, Kickboard & Duck Race and Duck & Nest Race. The Mushroom Pool (Over 4 years) will feature a Lucky Duck Grab, Duck & Spoon Race and Fly Swat Race. The Olympic Pool (Over 8 years) will feature a Lucky Duck Grab, Duck & Spoon Race and Kickboard Race.
There will also be three major races in the Olympic Pool, where all ages are able to join in. Entry is free.
The GJF Cup takes place at 2.30pm, where everyone helps to kick the ducks across to the other side of the pool and the first three across win cash prizes. Entry for the GJF Cup is $5.
The activities don’t stop outside the pool, with a jumping castle, face painting, Duck Toss, novelty events and Lucky Gate prize. Challenge yourself on the ever-popular Base Zero rock climbing wall.
Fuel up for all the activities with a canteen, barbeque, donuts, and Monteagle School fruit stall.
