Today’s decision by the State Government to extend the lockdown in South East Queensland has forced organisers of the Caboolture Family Fun Day not to proceed with this year’s event.
It was due to happen on Monday, August 9 at Centenary Lakes, Caboolture, but organisers Moreton Bay Region Industry and Tourism (MBRIT) say news the lockdown will be extended until at least Sunday forced their hand.
MBRIT Chairman Shane Newcombe says: “We are deeply saddened to have to make this decision, but the safety and wellbeing of our community and its families has, and will, always come first.
“The Caboolture Family Fun Day is one of the region’s most well-known family events, and embodies the community spirit and togetherness that we now need to continue to demonstrate daily during this challenging time.
“We will be making the decision to hopefully reschedule the event to later in the year once the current situation becomes clear. Please make sure to subscribe to Caboolture Festival newsletters and follow us on social media to receive any updates.”
The lockdown restrictions have also affected the Caboolture Festival program which consists of 28 events taking place from August 1-22 throughout Caboolture and surrounding areas.
“We’d like to thank all of our stakeholders involved with Caboolture Family Fun Day and Caboolture Festival for all of their support and patience as we navigate through this challenging time,” Mr Newcombe says.
