Join in today's Redland Easter festival

Today's  free Redlands Easter Family Festival is a celebration for the Redland community and is all about the multiplication of good things.

The annual festival, held in the Redland Showgrounds in Cleveland on Easter Monday from 10am to 4pm, has seen miracles of multiplication and generosity for more than a decade.

This year there will be $15,000 worth of rides for the kids, jumping castles, slides, petting zoos, face-painting, laser force, slot cars and a land train. There are giveaways and fun kids' games, donuts, scones and a sausage sizzle-and it's all free.

"This is a gift from the churches of the Redlands," said Tony Willis, president of the organising committee.

"We also have the gifts of sponsorship from Redland City Council and many businesses as well.

"It is amazing the number of people and organisations wanting to be a part of this great event year after year, and this year is no different."

The event will also include a showcase of community clubs and organisations titled "Redlands as a Caring Community," as well as a prayer tent where the team from the Healings Rooms at Birkdale Baptist church will be offering prayer and support to people from all walks of life.

"This event is worth being a part of," Mr Willis said.

"It is a coming together not just of Redlands Christian churches, but of the whole community.

"It's about being a part of something bigger.

"Getting to experience something as big as the love and hope of the Easter message is not just something for the people or churches or business who have devoted their energy and finances towards this, but for every person who walks through the gates on the day," Mr Willis said.
