GREAT FETE COMING TO TOWN
IT’S not just your usual fete with fairy floss and stomach-churning rides.
Lego building, skateboarding and an eco alley are some of the things you can expect to see alongside all the crowd favourites at Currimundi State School’s 2017 Great Fete.
The bi-annual event, held at the school grounds on August 5 is one of the biggest fundriasing events run by the school.
P&C representative Alice Taylor-Tighe said the event takes nearly two years of planning.
“At the end of the previous fete we’re already starting on the next one,” she said.
This fete will be a little different from the last two held by the school which were purely science focussed.
Ms Taylor-Tighe said the school began running a skate program last year which inspired a skating competition to take place as part of the fete.
The Great Fete Skate will feature an inclusive skate competition which aims to celebrate all skaters’ skill levels.
There will be “come and try” lessons, as well as skate demos from local pro skateboarders.
Ms Taylor-Tighe said the lego-building competition will also add some spark to the event.
The fete will also feature inflatable rides, market stalls, side-show alley type activities and stage performers.
