Come for family fun at the Annual Summer Picnic at Khandallah Park. Bring your picnic basket. Dress as a pirate, join the treasure hunt, get a pirate tattoo and enter the Pirate Fancy Dress Parade. Then watch KATs performance of Mean Jean the Pirate Queen at 1:30pm. You can swim in Khandallah Pool for free on this day, and there will be games, activities and a chance to make giant bubbles. All welcome.

Good news – 2021 is set to be the year of the long weekend.
Five out of 10 public holidays will be Mondayised (or Tuesdayised in one case) next year, which means if you work a standard Monday to Friday week, you can look forward to some extended breaks.
In fact, once you’ve tacked on the weekends, you’ll end up getting a whopping 25 days off out of those 10 stat days, plus your region’s anniversary day.
