Dozens attend Family Fun Day to celebrate National Families Week

Cooee Park was packed on Wednesday as dozens of families flocked to enjoy an array of activities on offer at the Family Fun Day.

The day was in celebration of National Families Week, which began on May 15 and will run until May 21.

Organised by Moree Family Support, in conjunction with a number of other community organisations, the event featured plenty of free entertainment and activities for the whole family.

The reptile show from Croc Encounters was a hit with the young and old, as children and adults alike lined up for the opportunity to hold snakes and lizards.

Children also enjoyed finding their rhythm and trying out hand drumming during a drumbeat session with Ability Links.

They could also get their faces stencilled with diamontes and their hair sprayed and enjoyed doing sand art, rock painting and playing with playdough in the sensory corner.

There was a barbecue running throughout the day and music which added to the fun atmosphere.

Moree Family Support community support worker Shane Smith said it was a great success, with more than 80 people attending throughout the day.
