Priscilla and Fazzi, much loved mascots of the O’Keefe Challenge and Heathcote Community Games, and their team have been working together tirelessly over the past 12 months to bring to the community and our visitors loads of free entertainment, together with some events geared particularly at the younger generations and those of us, who are not quite so athletic, but enjoy giving it a go and having some fun.
Finishing on the oval this year means there is loads of space and scope for these activities to happen.
Some of our free events include, Kelly Sports activities, rock climbing wall, and roving magician.
Kelly sports will bring crazy circus, radical relays and awesome animal games and of course the ever popular parachute game.
Our 8m high rock climbing wall is awesome. It creates a unique experience for the whole family with 5 different climbs to choose from. Getting to the top and ringing the bell lets everyone know if you made it.
For the young ones we have our Playzone , a portable blow up playground, incorporating 15 different play events .
Show Off Entertainment , one of our much loved entertainers, are back. Justin Showman will be roving through the area during the day providing close up and interactive entertainment, including loads of magic and illusions and some of the best balloon twisting you will ever see.
