From 6-9pm the Mount Isa community is welcome to attend the festivities including food, games, entertainment, and inflatable amusements.

The college Parents & Friends Committee re-introduced the Easter Fete last year with great success, and promise this year will be even bigger and better.

Fete convener, Amy Webb, said in 2015 the P&F decided it was time to reintroduce the fete to the Mount Isa Community. 

“We wanted to hold an event that was suitable not only for our students and their families, but for the wider Mount Isa Community,”  Ms Webb said.

To conclude the evening’s entertainment, the college is very excited to have Bulldust playing from 8pm.

The committee has been hard at work planning a ‘side-show alley’ with all your favourite olden day carnival games, such as pluck-a-duck, lob-a-choc, bulls eye, chocolate wheel, and more.

For thirsty fete goers there is a cafe and bar serving all kinds of drinks, including gourmet milkshakes.

There will be a crazy hair stall, face painting, cupcake decorating, helium balloons, glow products and small crafts, while gaming types can battle it out in multi-player video games on a big screen. 

It wouldn’t be a fete without stalls, selling cakes and preserves, trash and treasure, even garden trinkets.

And being Easter time, there will even be the chance for children and families to have their photo taken with the Easter Bunny.

A large bounty of prizes is on offer in the Cent Sale, Ham Wheel and multi-draw raffle, with a combined value heading well into the thousands of dollars.

To conclude the evening’s entertainment, the college is very excited to have Bulldust playing from 8pm.

There is also the opportunity for one lucky person to win a $5000 travel voucher, drawn at 9pm.

Entry to the College Oval on the night is via Camooweal Street & May Street gates at the back of the oval.

Tickets are great value at just $10 a pop from the college office or at the fete on Friday evening.
