Head to Childers for fun

Isis Town and Country - - Opinion - Liz Carson Edi­tor

I’M yet to ex­pe­ri­ence the fes­ti­val which brings the Bruce High­way to a stand­still, but I can’t wait to head down to Childers this weekend and ex­pe­ri­ence it for my­self.

Bring­ing an es­ti­mated 40,000 people to the re­gion is no mean feat and the fes­ti­val continues to grow, with new of­fer­ings each year.

It’s an event that re­ally has some­thing for ev­ery­one.

As well as food, mar­kets and a mas­sive va­ri­ety of en­ter­tain­ment, there are a num­ber of work­shops on this year to ap­peal to cre­ative types.

And a big at­trac­tion this year will be the re­open­ing of the Paragon Theatre, which has been closed since 1998.

I’m sure many lo­cals will take up the op­por­tu­nity to visit the theatre and see how the restora­tion has taken shape, and per­haps even rem­i­nisce.

So, if you’re look­ing for some­thing to do this weekend, take a trip down to Childers – I’m sure you’ll find plenty to do.
