If you go down to the park this month, you’re in for a big sur­prise

Cockburn Gazette - - NEWS -

HUN­DREDS of kids and fluffy toys will visit Man­ning Park later this month for the Teddy Bears Pic­nic.

The event has been held an­nu­ally by the City of Cock­burn since launch­ing in 1980.

Back then it was “a low-key event” held at Spearwood’s MacFaull Park.

Cock­burn’s event and cul­tural co­or­di­na­tor Marie La Fre­nais said the pic­nic had grown a lot since then.

“It moved from its orig­i­nal base sev­eral years ago to the grounds of the Azelia Ley Mu­seum in Man­ning Park and... it has grown to a very pop­u­lar event in the com­mu­nity, with loads of free ac­tiv­i­ties and en­ter­tain­ment for the chil­dren, with in­for­ma­tion and ser­vices avail­able for the par­ents,” she said.

The free event, one of sev­eral in Cock­burn’s com­mu­nity events cal­en­dar, will be held 10am to 1pm on Oc­to­ber 26.

It will fea­ture a per­for­mance by Mur­phy High School, which will be vis­it­ing from Alabama, as well as amuse­ments, dis­plays and food.
