THIS year’s Bayswater youth fest is being bundled up with the city’s family fun day.
In a move designed to lift the profile of young people, the council’s Youth Advisory Council has been involved in the planning of the event, which will feature a silent disco, mechanical surfboard,
a gaming zone and inflatable soccer pitch alongside family favourites like farm animals, a bouncy castle and face painting.
YAC member Galvin Phuong says the events are a “bunch of fun” but organising them requires “enthusiasm and commitment”.
Mayor Barry McKenna says joining the two festivals was in response to a survey about what youth wanted to see in the city.
“Combining our traditional family fun day and the youth fest means we can deliver a bigger, better and more attractive event for everyone,” Mr McKenna.
The event runs from 12 noon to 4pm at the Bayswater Waves Aquatic Centre tomorrow, Sunday October 30. Entry costs just $2.
