Fun and free: How Coast is celebrating Youth Week

Our youth, the future leaders and sons and daughters of locals across the coast.

It’s time we celebrate those aged 12 to 25, and what they bring to our community.

And, it’s all happening during Youth Week on the Fraser Coast, with some of the celebratory events including a colour run and skate party.

Kicking off the annual celebration from Monday, April 12, anyone between the ages of 12 to 25 is invited to watch movies on the big screen, with free popcorn as a bonus, at the Brolga Theatre in Maryborough.

The animated comedy Spies in Disguise will be on screen at 2pm, while action comedy SuperIntelligence will start at 4pm.

Although free, movie tickets are limited, so head here to reserve your spot.

If movies aren’t your thing, you can get some fresh air and exercise with a Colour Run, also being held at the Brolga Theatre, heading through Queens Park and Portside.

The adventures continue on Thursday, April 15, with the Pialba Youth Precinct preparing for a big afternoon.
