Make sure you come to the Rainbow Beach Pig Day Out at the Community Centre
The Kelly Gang have been busy and everything is ready for our fourth annual Rainbow Beach Pig Day Out! According to Terri Geissmann, “Bruce and I began this event in 2013 as a memorial for our daughter Kelly and to raise funds to find a cure for Melanoma, which is the most common cancer in people 15 to 39 years old.”
Profits from the event are donated to the Australian Melanoma Research Foundation and a clinic will be available at the event for anyone wanting skin checks. Terri wants to remind people to, “wear swimmers for your check-up and make appointments at the clinic gazebo on the day!”
The highlight of Pig Day Out is the Peak Pig Racing and these cute piglets will race again this year. National champion chainsaw sculptor, Keith Gall, will be creating one of his beautiful sculptures to raffle for charity, and Zippy will be giving a talk about reptile safety.
Alan Kelly and the Kelly Family Band will be joining locals Joel Mac, Brendo and Tina Louise to provide live music, and Keith Gall will be starting our day with some classic Australiana songs.
The dodgems are coming along with other rides, markets, twirling and drumming workshops and much more. For a complete list of entertainment and ride prices, go to http://www.rainbowbeachpigdayout.com.au/ or watch our Facebook page for updates!
