Western Downs’ youth to let loose in October

KIDS in the Western Downs will get the chance to let loose in October thanks to a series of Youth Month events across the region hosted by the council.

Western Downs councillor Kaye Maguire said it was vital to celebrate the contributions of the region’s young people, after a particularly tough year for all residents.

“The youth of our region play a very big part in our active vibrant communities so it’s great to be able to celebrate them and offer the chance for everyone to come together and have some fun,” she said.

“2020 has been a difficult year for everyone, including our youth and that’s why this October we can’t wait to give them an excuse to let their hair down.”

Cr Maguire said they have several great activities planned, which included Archery Attack, mechanical bull rides, an inflatable obstacle course, and a jumping castle.
