CHEER on 2017’s Avon De­scent com­peti­tors as they head to the fin­ish line at Gar­vey Park this week­end.

The City of Bel­mont is host­ing a free fam­ily fun day at the river­side As­cot park on Sun­day, Au­gust 6, with en­ter­tain­ment, chil­dren’s ac­tiv­i­ties and live race com­men­tary.

There will also be he­li­copter rides for spec­ta­tors to get a bird’s eye view of the race.

City of Bel­mont Mayor Phil Marks en­cour­aged res­i­dents to visit the com­mu­nity get-to­gether event and cel­e­brate the white­wa­ter race.

“This year we also have the ex­cit­ing ad­di­tion of a big screen which will broad­cast live ac­tion as com­peti­tors ap­proach Gar­vey Park, as well as show­ing high­lights from Day 1 and 2,” Mr Marks said.

Lo­cals can also ex­plore li­brary, mu­seum and neigh­bour­hood watch in­for­ma­tion stalls, and take a seat out of the el­e­ments in the un­der­cover mar­quee.

Ac­tiv­i­ties for kids to en­joy in­clude an in­door play­ground, face paint­ing, an­i­mal encounters and a ju­nior sports expo, where chil­dren can have a go at tee-ball, base­ball and cricket.

City of Bel­mont res­i­dents are in­vited to bring their op­por­tu­nity cards for free of­fers, in­clud­ing food and bev­er­ages.

The fam­ily fun day kicks off at 11.30am and runs un­til 3.30pm.
