I HAD THE PLEASURE RECENTLY OF OFFICIALLY OPENING BLACKWATER’S “PARKWAVE”, A NATIONAL YOUTH WEEK INITIATIVE COORDINATED BY THE CENTRAL HIGHLANDS REGIONAL COUNCIL (CHRC) WITH FUNDING ASSISTANCE FROM THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT.
Congratulations to the team for putting on such a great event in Blackwater with so many local families taking the opportunity to enjoy the free community night out.
There were live music acts on two stages, jumping castles, rides, food vendors and street performers but most important of all, lots of families enjoy the entertainment under the Blackwater night sky.
Funding from Central Highlands Regional Council, BMA and Federal Government through Building Better Regions Fund delivered a hugely successful event for youth and families with more than 1,500 through the gates, easily exceeding forecasted attendance numbers.
Congratulations to Event Organiser Josh Clutterbuck from CHRC, for developing and coordinating the event with the support of his team of CHRC staff and volunteers.
Special mention also to the Blackwater Youth Inc group for doing a terrific job in keeping the entire area clean and well presented from start to pack down.
