Head to Caloundra’s Felicity Park for loads of free family fun
  • Wednesday 08 April 2015

Caloundra Regional Gallery’s free Family Fun in Felicity Park returns on Saturday, April 18 and is sure to entertain the whole family from 11am to 4pm.

There is something to suit all ages from camouflage and kaleidoscope art, a book launch, sausage sizzle and the return of the popular Suitcase Rummage.

The latest Kids on Tour program from the Queensland Art Gallery | Gallery of Modern Art (QAGOMA), Patterns Bandits, will see children exploring the transformative and immersive qualities of camouflage and kaleidoscopes. The regional tour has been drawn from the exhibition, which was created by Los Angeles-based Australian artist Jemima Wyman in collaboration with the Gallery’s Children’s Art Centre that was in display at GOMA last year.
The Suitcase Rummage is back by popular demand and promises to be everything that is a market without the hassle. You can be a part of the Rummage experience by selling your wares or come along to buy some real beauties to add to your collection. There will be brilliant vintage, artwork, bric-a-brac, clothing, books, jewellery, seconds, hand-made, shoes, records, music, badges, cards, handmade paper, you name it, so come along for a bargain, a swap, or an old fashioned haggle. Suitcase Rummage is not to be missed. You must register to sell your wares at www.suitcaserummage.com.au.

Find out how peace and happiness can be achieved by joining Ven Tenzin Namdag from 11am to noon. Namdag is a Buddhist Nun in the lineage of His Holiness the Dalai Lama and has been ordained for 18 years. She was director of Land of Medicine Buddha in California for two years and has taught extensively in different countries including Australia.

If all this activity and enlightenment makes you hungry you can enjoy a free sausage sizzle, courtesy of the Friends of the Gallery, from noon to 1pm.

Join Division 2 Councillor Tim Dwyer and Friends of the Caloundra Lighthouses from 1 to 2pm to celebrate the launch of the children’s picture storybook ‘The Little Lighthouse’ written by John Bradley and illustrated by Diane Somers-Cook. Signed copies of the book will be available for purchase.
