A pool party, special citizenship ceremony and a summer fair at St Ives Showground are coming up on Thursday 26 January.
It’s set to be a great day out in Ku-ring-gai this Australia Day. In the morning Mayor Jeff Pettett and Councillors will welcome 165 new Australians making their pledge as citizens.
The winners of the Ku-ring-gai Australia Day Awards will also be announced in the morning ceremony held at Knox Grammar School.
In the afternoon between 1pm and 5pm the Ku-ring-gai Fitness & Aquatic Centre will host a pool party featuring a BBQ, face painting, free entertainment, music and giveaways. Entry is by gold coin donation and no bookings are required.
Due to limited parking, those wishing to attend the pool party are advised to park in Lofberg Road. Parking is available at the Bicentennial Club West Pymble, which will be serving lunch on the day. There is also bike parking for up to 20 cycles.
Over at St Ives Showground, a summer fair will be held on 26 January featuring food trucks, fireworks, amusement rides, an animal nursery and children’s movies.
Mayor Jeff Pettett said this year’s Australia Day events would be the first in three years without COVID restrictions.
“Congratulations to everyone becoming a new citizen on the day, we’re looking forward to celebrating this milestone with you.”
