First Get Active Logan Expo offers all the fun of the fair

THE first Get Active Logan Expo at Logan Village Green offered an A-Z of health, wellness and family fun, starting with apple slinkies and ending with Zumba.

There were markets and workshops and displays in activities ranging from gypsy hooping and sword play to yoga, tai chi, meditation and more.

The soundtrack included Tibetan sound bowls, a harpist, live country music and rock’n’roll with dance courtesy of the Village Rockers.

Kids activities included an animal farm, face painting, fairy wand making and cup cake decorating.

The Doo Drop Inn crafters and Logan Village Museum threw open the doors for extended hours from 10am to 4pm.

The event was organised by Lotus Vana, which runs programs for seniors and those with disabilities at Logan Village.

Area councillor Laurie Koranski said the event was great fit the Village Green which was looking at new ways to bring visitors to the pioneer village as identified by the recent Logan Village Forum.

“Congratulations to (organiser) Mike Rennie and the team from Lotus Vana,” Cr Koranski said.

“This was the first Get Active Logan festival. It was great to see the green come to life, as it did today.”

Logan Village Museum and the Logan Village Lions Club raised funds for drought relief.
