Division Three Councillor Adam Hain with Ryan and Kelly Smith gearing up for Caboolture Family Fun Day.

The annual Caboolture Family Fun Day is bringing the ultimate affordable show experience to the Moreton Bay Region with a huge program of free rides, entertainment and activities for families to enjoy.

Held on Monday 14th August between 10.00am and 4.00pm at Centenary Lakes, Caboolture, the day will be an inexpensive alternative to the EKKA, with over 10 free rides and activities for kids to enjoy and a free action-packed Laser Tag attraction.

Moreton Bay Region Industry & Tourism (MBRIT) CEO, Mr Shane Newcombe, says the Caboolture Family Fun Day remains one of the most popular annual events in the area.

“Events like the Caboolture Family Fun Day are great at bringing the local community together. Show season is a fun time of year but can be expensive. We aim to deliver the same show experience as the EKKA at a fraction of the cost to families."

Division 3 Councillor, Adam Hain, said this year’s Caboolture Family Fun Day was not to be missed, expected to be bigger and better than ever before.

“With the Barn Yard Kids Zone and plenty of rides and entertainment on offer, kids will certainly be kept well and truly busy bouncing from one area to the next,” Cr Hain said.

“Every year the Caboolture Family Fun Day gets bigger and better and I’m particularly pumped that every kid’s favourite crazy sheep - Shaun the Sheep - will be making a special appearance in the Moreton Bay Region for this year’s fantastic event.

“While the kids enjoy all the thrills and spills, parents can take a much need R&R through the market stalls.

“So, if you’re up for some cracking fun and an affordable day out the whole family can enjoy, make sure you come along and make the most of this fantastic event right here in our backyard.”

The Barn Yard Kids Zone will also include free Pumpkin Bowling, free Pony Rides, free Face Painting, a free Kids Barn House to explore and a free Animal Farm where visitors can get up close with real barn yard creatures.

International Animated Children’s Television phenomenon Shaun the Sheep will perform live at 10.50am and 12.10pm. Comedy children’s series Shaun the Sheep is loved by children in over 180 countries globally.

The entire day will feature an incredible program of family-friendly live entertainment including solo, duo and group musical performances. Highlights will include the Kangagang and Playtime Farm Show and the hilarious Larrikin Puppets. Families can also enjoy incredible magic tricks and illusions by Nickelby the Magician and get up close with the animals from Geckos Wildlife.

And no show experience would be complete without a huge range of colourful show bags for purchase to take home at the end of a fantastic and affordable show day.

Visitors are encouraged to make use of parking available at Caboolture town centre in the multi-story carpark off Hasking Street. Free Shuttle Buses will run from Caboolture Station and Caboolture Town Square to the event from 9.30am to 5.00pm for visitor’s convenience.
