There’ll be something on everyday from arts and crafts in the park, basketball, kids yoga, gardening, cupcake decorating, live music and much more.

Coordinated by Livingstone Shire Council, the events aim to bring families together, encourage connection, play, and help create memorable moments for children of all ages.

It kicks off today and will last for two weeks.

Councillor Rhodes Watson says there is plenty on offer as part of the exciting line-up of activities, designed to spark creativity, foster a love for music, promote physical fitness, and celebrate culture.

“From arts and crafts in the park, basketball, kids yoga, a disco, cupcake decorating, live music and more, there is something for the whole family to enjoy,” he says.

“One of the exciting new events included in this programme is the Eat Alley Working Bee where keen gardeners wanting to expand their knowledge can help to set up a community garden.

“Participants will be helping to construct, and fill raised garden beds, add a composting system and plant a variety of edible produce.

“Council is proud to continue to deliver these school holiday programmes throughout the year, which have been a huge success since launching in 2021.

“Not only do they provide wonderful experiences for the Shire’s youth, they also benefit our business community with an economic boost in driving more traffic to our town centres.”

To celebrate the final weekend of the holidays, a kids disco event will be held at Yeppoon Town Hall 8 July, for primary and high school aged children.

Kids can enjoy a live DJ and funky entertainer Maggie Moo Music, as well as a light show.

In addition to this, Council’s popular Tides and Tunes program will see talented local musicians take to the Yeppoon Amphitheatre stage to perform live each Friday and Saturday nights across three weekends.
