Celebrating active lives through Youth Week

FRASER Coast youth have been enjoying live music, movies, inflatable fun, park runs and workshops as part of National Youth Week, and there's still time left to get involved.

From now until April 15, Deputy Mayor George Seymour said Fraser Coast youths aged between 12 and 25 years could join in the celebration.

"Youth Week is about celebrating our young, who have an important stake in our community," Cr Seymour said.

We want the Fraser Coast to be a vibrant and engaging place for young people.

"As well as offering them a wide variety of fun activities to enjoy, National Youth Week gives our young people an opportunity to express their ideas and views."

In Maryborough, young people can go skating and listen to live music at Ululah Park, learn about 3D painting at the city library, make clay pieces at Gatakers Artspace, or take a 5km run at Anzac Park.

Hervey Bay youths can take a 5km run at Urangan Pier Park, burn off energy at the Inflatable Fun Days, join the Skateboard and Scooter Jam at Hervey Bay Rock Off, or watch movies and listen to live music at the cultural centre.

Youths in Bauple have activities to choose from including a pool competition, rock wall climbing, games, prize give-aways, music and a barbecue.

The week-long celebration will wrap up with a free celebration at the Hervey Bay Cultural Centre, with live music by Derek Smith, youth activities and info, and a barbecue.
