Mount Isa City Council says it is getting ready to officially welcome newborns and young babies to the community as a part of this year's Welcoming Babies Day event.
Last year's event was postponed due to the pandemic, but it is now back for 2021 but will be hosted on a Sunday, so the whole family can attend and have a picnic outside on a beautiful autumn day, Council says.
"Come and have morning tea, lunch or both and enjoy a relaxing day out with baby and family," Council said.
"Food, market and relevant information stalls are invited to attend so that mums and dads can see what's on offer for baby in Mount Isa."
This year's event be held on Sunday, May 23, from 10am to 1pm at the Buchanan Park Entertainment Centre,
Families of babies aged from 0 to two and a half years can register at www.surveymonkey.com/r/977T7RF
Each registered baby will receive a personalised event certificate to keep as a memento and will have the opportunity to have a photo taken on the day.
Babies registered to attend the 2020 Welcoming Babies Day will need to re-register for this year's event.
