After the roaring success of last year’s ‘Party at the Moulin Rouge’, the team from the Bangalow Community Children’s Centre is back and ready to transform the A&I Hall once again for their major fundraiser of the year.

Themed as a ‘Funfair After Dark’, the adults-only event will include a stage show hypnotist and funfair attractions.

‘When the sun goes down come join the carnies, cowboys and gypsies,’ say organisers. ‘Think fairy floss and fireworks! Take a walk down sideshow alley and win your gal a prize in games of skill, strength or luck.

‘Show your stuff on the mechanical bull or just cheer on the missus. See the freak show or be the freak show and enter the competition for the most outrageous costume of the night.’

Funds going towards kitchen

Last year, thanks to the generosity of the Bangalow community, the not-for-profit centre raised enough to complete construction of the new babies’ room.

This year the centre is aiming to build a kitchen in the middle room to expand the cooking and science educational experiences for the children. Funfair After Dark is on  Saturday October 12. Tickets available from BCCC, Bangalow Post Office or call the centre on 6687 1552 to pay by credit card over the phone.
