Rotary fair favourites for bargain price

South Western Times

Incredible creatures, whimsical rides and Clancy the Clown will fill Forrest Park with family fun on Sunday, as the Rotary Club of South Bunbury hosts the 33rd annual Children’s Fair.

Event coordinator Peter Hill said the free-entry event was created to be enjoyed by all – without burning a hole in pockets.

“The gentleman who started this, that was his original idea that this would be affordable for families,” he said.

“If you go anywhere else and go on a climbing wall it will cost about $10 but here it is only going to be $4.

“A lot of the activities and functions here are donated.”

The festivities will also include an animal nursery, face painting, a ferris wheel, bouncy castles and a sideshow alley.

There will also be entertainment for the adults, with plant stalls, sausage sizzles and a performance by the Bunbury City Band.

Run in conjunction with the South West Model Railway Engineers, visitors can also expect to see trains whizzing around the track.

Mr Hill said the money raised from the event would go to help children.

“In the past we have given some money to Carey Park Primary School for some special iPads, we bought some special training boards for the juniors at the Surf Life Saving Club, we have given some to Sail Into Life and we have given some money to College Row School,” he said.
