Baldivis Fair turns 40 and goes back to its roots

ORGANISERS of the 40th Annual Baldivis Fair will give a big nod to its humble beginnings.

The fair has been organised by the Baldivis Primary School P&C and president Renae Fussell said some original old attractions would be revived at this year’s event.

“We are going back to the roots by bringing back the dunking machine,” she said.

“And yes, we already have teachers who have volunteered for it.

“There will be the chocolate wheel, community stalls and the damper stall is back.”

She said previous supporters of the event would be returning.

“The Baldivis Lions are back on board running the bar. We are really excited about that,” she said.

Mrs Fussell said volunteers were still tricky to find but local businesses had stepped up.

“A lot of local businesses will be providing free activities for the kids as that is the focus – to keep costs low for families. Little Smiles Mascot Hire is just one of the many that will provide its services for free,” she said.

City of Rockingham councillor Matt Whitfield said fun activities and low costs were priorities for the November 5 event.

“There will be animals, dinosaurs, archery free activities, and all rides $5,” he said.

“We are going to have a laser skirmish and sumo costume wrestling – lots of things for people to do and get involved with.

“There will be a giveaway of $100 on the hour with the condition that they must be at the draw location to win.”

There will also be an auction of $7000 worth of goods. All funds raised will go towards extending the undercover section at Baldivis Primary School.

Entry will be by gold coin donation.
