Colour in the Park
Stratford District Youth Council invites you to come celebrate Children's Day at their Colour in the Park event on Sunday March 5th, 2023.
The young and young at heart will love getting doused in coloured powder as they run or walk 2.5km or do the full 5km run around King Edward Park. Add more good vibes with music and dancing, free Face Painting and a free Sausage Sizzle before the final colour throw.
The event is a colourful and creative way of spending time with family and bringing the community together.
