Get ready for the Rainbow Beach Pig Day Out on Saturday June 4

The third annual Rainbow Beach Pig Day Out event is happening at Rainbow Beach Community Hall on Saturday June 4, from 9am until late.

Bruce and Terri Geissmann organise this day in loving memory of Kelly Geissmann, with funds raised on behalf of the Australian Melanoma Research Foundation (AMRF).

Terri explained a few Pig Day changes for 2016, “We’ve acted on participant feedback from last year and the event layout has been changed to suit families better.

“There will be more rides generally, and larger rides for teenagers and adults. There are ride bands available on the day, with discounts for small children. And we have more face painters to alleviate any waiting.

“Oh, and Penelope Pig, last year’s mascot, is visiting!”

In addition to fun rides, there will be live music, Devonshire tea, a sausage sizzle, a petting zoo, market stalls enjoy, and much more. For more event and entertainment information, visit the new website, www.rainbowbeachpigdayout.com.au

There will also be a photography competition, run through the Facebook page, for candid images taken on the day.

Pig Day Out will have a melanoma clinic operating at the event for anyone wanting a check up. Terri will be manning the stall for information, donations and merchandise.

If you would like to get on board, come to the Community Hall 3pm, May 15 or 29 and help! Please contact Rachel 0419 464 254 or Di 0408 896 769.
