The 2017 Water Safety Week kicks off once again with Splashfest on Sunday 24th September down at the spectacular Darwin Waterfront. From 9am till 1pm, MC Amy Hetherington will be hosting a free family fun event on the lawns, with entertainment and activities, such as jumping castles and waterslides, face painting and glitter tattoos, arts and crafts, and much, much more! And this year will feature an illuminated coral display projected onto the Cinema 360 dome, which is set to be the biggest feature of the event! It sounds pretty cool, ay?
Water Safety Week is a Territory Government initiative, which focuses on creating awareness about keeping ourselves and others safe in the water. The Kids Alive website states that drowning is the greatest cause of accidental death in children under five in Australia, so as adults, it is important that we keep an eye on our kids at all times, and learn the basics of CPR, should a disastrous event ever occur. We also need to be abiding by the safe alcohol limits and looking out for ourselves and our mates too when we are enjoying good times, in and around water.
So, in addition to the four hours of non-stop fun and entertainment, there will also be a huge variety of useful information on water safety available, including live demonstrations from the Lifeguards themselves. It’s the perfect combination of learning and fun for both adults and kids. Add this free event to your calendar this September, and the Ray White Bayside team will see you there!
