No need to hunt for a fun Easter weekend
WHAT would Easter be without a good old fashioned Easter egg hunt?
Dalby Apex club have taken that tradition a step further with their annual Easter Family Fun day, held this Saturday at Thomas Jack park.
APEX Club president Aidan Dunn said the club aimed to create a day for the whole community to enjoy.
"We're trying to grow it a little bit more every year than to just be an Easter egg hunt,” he said.
"We're trying to make it a little more friendly across the spectrum for the family as a whole so there's something for mum and dad and the older kids as well.
"Our aim is to provide a fun event that encourages wholesome educational activities at the same time as keeping people in Dalby which has economic and societal benefits for the whole region. "
There is something in store for everyone, from a coffee van, the donut man, and barbecue for the adults, to face painting, craft, and of course the Easter egg hunt for the young ones.
Despite expectations of dwindling numbers due to families being away for the holidays, Mr Dunn hopes the day will alleviate some stress from families who struggle during the holiday period.
"My hopes for the day are just that everyone has a good time,” he said.
"It provides an opportunity for some families where they may not be able to afford to give as much to their kids at Easter.
"It gives them an opportunity to have fun and have something special and exciting without a huge cost to mum and dad.”
Without the support of the community, the day wouldn't be able to go ahead, according to Mr Dunn.
"I'd like to say a big thank you to all of our sponsors who are helping to make the day possible,” he said.
The day begins at 7.30am and concludes at 10.30am. A gold coin donation is all that's needed to participate.
