COOLUM sure knows how to fire up the fun factor for Coolum Carnival with the annual fundraiser for Coolum State School set for Friday, October 21, kicking off at 3.30pm until the fireworks close off the night just after 8.30pm.
This year’s Carnival will be bigger than ever with fast rides, fairground attractions, and great food and entertainment to bring the community together.
Taking centre stage will be the very popular piglet racing track, with a hugely entertaining race each hour and there’s also a pedal kart course and ‘Kick for Cash’.
Principal Anthony Ryan said he was thrilled to see the school and wider community get behind the carnival.
“This is an enduring social event for the town.
“Ex-students come back in droves, friends catch up, kids have a ball, and we see neighbours and business people get together and chat.
“I’m looking forward to the best fireworks, the biggest rides and you’ll find some new attractions among the sideshow favourites,” Mr Ryan said.
Popular with young and old are the animal nursery, pony rides, mini golf, dunking machine and Strike Bowling.
This year proceeds from the Carnival will go to upgrading audio-visual equipment to ensure all young stars shine on stage at Coolum State School.
“We appreciate the sponsors and business people who are helping to make Coolum Carnival a success, which in turn benefits all our students,” Mr Ryan said.
