Is was a little bit windy this year at the Werrington Festival, but that didn’t stop the fun. The families who attended got to chat with local RFS firefighters, were entertained with stage performances full of talented Werrington locals, and had a visit from Rooby Roo the REaDING Kangaroo. They also browsed around the 40 plus small business and local community information stalls.
Families and young people were also able to enjoy the regular FREE festival activities like rock climbing, petting zoo with pony rides, face painting, spray tattoos, motorised go carts and jumping castles. This year, a popular new addition to the festival activities was the mechanical bull, with a few parents and RFS firefighters were spied enjoying the fun. Our youth team kept hunger at bay supplying the residents with a delicious BBQ while raising funds for their annual youth camp. It was an amazing day with plenty of positive feedback from members of the community.
