Isis Town and Country - - News -

THIS year’s Childers Fes­ti­val could see you nab­bing a prime park­ing spot or not hav­ing to drive at all.

Coun­cil spokesman Cr Judy Peters said, with up to 40,000 peo­ple de­scend­ing on Childers, know­ing where the avail­able park­ing op­tions were lo­cated be­fore head­ing to Childers could make peo­ple’s trips much eas­ier.

“There is free park­ing at the Childers Show­ground with park­ing for dis­abled park­ing per­mit hold­ers avail­able on the cor­ner of Cres­cent and Lord sts,” Cr Peters said.

“Park’n’ride ser­vices will be of­fered through­out the day, be­tween 9am and 3.30pm. There will be four coaches run­ning con­tin­u­ously col­lect­ing pa­trons from des­ig­nated park­ing ar­eas such as the Childers Show grounds, and along the Bruce Hwy.

“Keep an eye out for our park’n’ride signs for pick-up lo­ca­tions and park­ing signs which will help guide mo­torists to the show grounds.

Cr Peters said fes­ti­val­go­ers should also be aware, apart from reg­is­tered guide dogs, this was a “no-dog” event.

“We un­der­stand that some peo­ple may travel to the fes­ti­val with their pets or pre­fer not to leave them at home for the day so Red Col­lar Res­cue Inc will be on­site at the Childers Show ground of­fer­ing a dog-mind­ing service.

“This service will be avail­able from 9am–3.30pm at a cost of $10/dog, dogs are shaded, wa­ter, ex­er­cise and of course, com­pan­ion­ship,

All funds raised sup­port Red Col­lar Res­cue.”
