GOSNELLS residents ‘butter’ be ready, because Youth Week WA is set to be celebrated in the City with skating, art, music and pancakes.

The Pancake Youth Fest is a family friendly event for all ages and includes live performances and skate, music and art workshops.

There will be giant inflatables, amusements and free pancakes.

The pebbles painted as part of the preceding days’ art workshops will also be used to make a large community artwork at the festival.

City of Gosnells Mayor Glenn Dewhurst said young people were sometimes portrayed negatively in society, but the City wanted its young residents to be engaged and involved in the community.

“We have heaps of opportunities for young people to be actively involved in our community in the City of Gosnells,” he said.

“The City-run GozYac and the Skate Park Advisory Group provide great opportunities to have your say on issues that affect local young people, or you can join in the many programs and events run by the City each year.”

Between 1.30pm and 5.30pm on April 12 and April 13, children and young people would join in Positive Pebble Painting workshops at Maddington Centro.

The City would also celebrate the contributions of young people in the community with the Pancake Youth Fest, as part of Youth Week WA between 10am and 2pm on April 14 at Mills Park Skate Plaza.
