Australia Day 2020 - relive the fun and excitement!
Local families came together under perfect weather conditions to enjoy Australia Day celebrations hosted by Dennis Family Corporation at Manor Lakes over the Australia Day long weekend, and this year carrying a “sustainability” theme.
The event was once again hugely successful in bringing the Manor Lakes community together in celebration, drawing large crowds and providing loads of entertainment for local families.
“Our Australia Day celebration on Sunday, 26th January was amazing, with around 2,500 people coming along to enjoy the festivities,” Manor Lakes Marketing Executive, Kelly Cowley reported.
“The sustainability theme was well received. We gave away hundreds of reusable Manor Lakes branded water bottles, native plants at the event and our community were incredibly generous with their gold coin donation to local charity, Werribe River Association” she noted.
Families enjoyed relaxing under market umbrellas with outdoor furniture and hay bales available to sit on, whilst others enjoyed moving around the extensive array of activities on offer.
Highlights amongst a packed program of entertainment included a world dance spectacular, sustainable Olympics running activities, messy science experiments, carnival rides, face painting, petting zoo, pony rides, roving performers including the breath-taking Dinosaur show which captivated people’s attention, and provided the perfect selfie moment!
