Skip the Ekka flus and queues this year, and gather the family for a good old-fashioned day of fun at the Patricks Road Carnival on Saturday 1 September, hosted by the P&C Association.
The school will be transformed into a spring Carnival with a side show alley, more than 20 market stalls, food stands, and entertainment with performances from school music ensembles and local clubs.
With more than ten rides, there is something for the young, and the young-at-heart. Whether it’s a whirl on the dodgem cars, a spin in the tea cups, or the dizzying heights of the Round-Up – everyone can join in the fun.
While the kids indulge in the rides, mums and dads can relax in the beer and wine tent, or enjoy a coffee and piece of cake.
No Carnival would be complete without market stalls – with so many on offer we promise to keep you entertained. We have all your favourites with cake, game, prize, plant, book, toy and clothes stalls. For those looking for that something extra special, we have a variety of local business stalls featuring a range of quality handmade wares, kids clothing, active wear, spicy meat rubs and much more.
With so much to see and do, replenish with a snack from one of our many food stalls serving sushi, chicken curry or traditional festival fare such as hot chips, burgers, and of course a sausage sizzle. For the sweet tooth, Ruby the Little Red Van will be serving scrumptious ice-creams, and there will be snow cones and fairy floss.
Carnival-goers are encouraged to bring reusable water bottles as a free hydration station will be available to fill-up bottles with filtered and chilled water. Please bring backpacks as plastic bags are no longer able to be offered.
The fun starts at 11am, with rides open from midday until 5pm. For more details, visit our Facebook page search ‘Patricks Road Carnival’ and click like.
