2017 family night out gets pinked

Families and friends came together again to rock out under the stars to the sound of PINKED at this year’s Family Night Out Concert held at the Perth Zoo.

It was a popular way for parents to have their kids entertained on March 18 as families gained entry to explore the zoo ahead of the concert kicking off as the sun set. It was a fantastic show – thanks to Samantha and her band and dancers.

We could just imagine the animals having a dance along in their enclosures! But it wasn’t just covers of Pink’s greatest hits and an abundance of animals for people to enjoy. There was so much more.

The entertainment rolled out all evening as Mal and Judi, from Awesome Balloon Creations joined us again to help keep the children (and adults) occupied with temporary tattoos and an amazing bubble machine. For the budding artists in the crowd, Sony Productions supplied an array of colouring-in sheets to keep them busy, and prizes for people to walk away with.

If you were lucky enough, you were picked out from the crowd with family passes to the latest Smurf movie. We hope the winning families enjoyed the movie.

While rain did threaten to dampen the vibes for the evening it held off for the night, which was greatly appreciated by the event organisers. Just when an injection of energy was needed, a gourmet barbecue was served up by Mustard Catering. It was a perfect evening, and great fun was had by everyone.

Events like these don’t happen without volunteers, so a BIG thank you to:

• Kristy, Jonelle & Chris Carlsson
• Georgia Lowry
• Michele & Pat Seymour
• Kylie Dalton and her staff from Absolute Edge Media
• Gary Kearns
• Sarah Felmingham
