THE Rockingham Youth Beach Party is back with a splash.

About 1500 young people aged 12 to 18 years are expected at the event.

Don’t Drink and Drown team members will run volleyball, while headspace Rockingham staff will be making flower crowns.

The City of Rockingham will provide shaded areas to relax, bean bags, free land based water slides, security, first aid and youth workers to support the young people in attendance.

There will also be a DJ and free hamburgers and slushies.

Mayor Barry Sammels said the City was delighted to be hosting the event once again in 2019.

“The Youth Beach Party is one of the City’s most popular annual events for young people,” he said.

“It is a great opportunity for our younger residents to connect, relax and enjoy a day just for them.

“With the Rockingham Beach Foreshore Revitalisation underway, the City decided to head to Bell Park for the event in 2019.”

The event is part of the City’s Summer Series of alcohol and smoke free events.

Young people will have their bags checked on arrival and will need to pick up a wrist band from City staff to join in.
