On 16 August from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Forest Lake residents and nearby suburbs are in for loads of fun and excitement as Grand Avenue State School celebrates Ekka Fun Day. This year’s fun day is meant to be bigger and better than the previous one.

There are going to be amazing rides such as the Super Whizzer, Let’s Dance, Dodgem Cars, Round Up, and many more. You can now purchase your ultimate ride passes through Flexischools.

Make sure that you fuel yourself to enjoy the whole day by grabbing a bite from the rows of food stalls lined up on that day. Grab a steaming cup of joe at The Rich Pour, Coffee. Pair it up with some delicious and fluffy pancakes from Joeys Mini Pancakes. Stroll around with a bucket of popcorn from The Popcorn Man. And make sure that you refresh with some Cool info Snowcones.
