On Saturday May 13th twelve local youth participated in the first-ever Blackburn Birthday Bash event which was held outdoors in the park beside the Community Hall. Five boys and seven girls ranging in age from 9 to 14 participated.
Everyone got a chance to get to know one another (and win prizes) through an energizing game of ‘line up in the order of…’ Participants played frisbee, searched for giant chocolate tooneys in a nature scavenger hunt, enjoyed a game of truly crazy baseball and tried to stay dry during a game of spray bottle tag. There was just enough time for a final game of gift grab before everyone enjoyed chocolate cupcakes and drinks and collected a treat bag to bring home.
