Bring your Little Piggies down to BaconFest
THIS year's BaconFest will be another, all inclusive event for both adults and children, thanks to the Little Piggies team.
While it was titled Little Piggies in the Park last year, they've decided to centralise the kid's sector and bring it closer to the BaconFest action, at Kingaroy's town hall and library alleyway.
Suzanne Mungall, the organiser of Little Piggies said this will allow both parents and kids to access the locations easier.
When it comes to what the kids can expect this year, there's a whole lot of activities planned for primary school ages and under.
"We'll have some rides this year, but like last year, most of our vendors for little piggies are actually the community groups,” she said.
Mrs Mungall said this includes school P&Cs, Girl Guides, and more.
"It's a great opportunity for gaining local interest for these groups, either publicising what they do or fundraising themselves,” she said.
The major sponsor of this year's Little Piggies is Saint Mary's Catholic College, who will be doing entertainment and making sure there's a rolling program for kids.
Mrs Mungall said other entertainment will include a house building competition from Northern Agriservices, with straw, bricks and sticks.
"There will also be games, crafts activities, making piggie masks, and doing Telstra's free colouring competition,” she said.
Telstra have put up a free tablet for the prize of the colouring competition, which the Little Piggies team are very grateful for.
Mrs Mungall said all of the sponsors from last year were really happy with the BaconFest outcome, including Telstra, and are therefore still supporting the event.
If you want to get your kids involved with this year's BaconFest, feel free to bring them along to the Little Piggies subsector, on Saturday, August 24, from 10am until 4pm.
