Families have a blast at picnics
Rio Tinto held its annual picnic days in Tom Price and Paraburdoo last month, giving residents a day out of family fun and entertainment.
This year, punters enjoyed performances from children’s entertainers Ben and Holly, SPLAT comedy troupe, a Queen tribute band and local rockers Paraphernalia.
There were also a silent disco for people to dance the night away and a fireworks display.
Rio Tinto general manager Tom Price and Marandoo Greg Bacon said he was impressed with his first picnic day, particularly the volunteers who brought it all together.
“It’s hard to go past the spectacular fireworks display as the highlight; however, the event is more impressive when you understand how it comes together,” he said.
“I would particularly like to thank the Nameless Festival Committee and all the community organisations and businesses that dedicated their time to make it a great event for both towns.
“It’s a great feeling returning to work from a weekend where people feel re-energised because they have been able to enjoy time with their families, colleagues and friends over good food and entertainment.”
