Action-packed weekend in Tweed

TWEED residents are in for an action-packed weekend, with a number of exciting events and activities lined up.

Naval gunfire will crackle into the early evening sky above Chris Cunningham Memorial Park next door to Twin Towns Services Club tonight when the Australian Navy presents the colourful and spectacular Ceremonial Sunset and Beat to Quarters between 5.30pm and 6.30pm.

Trevor “Big Trev” Arbon, of Big Trev’s Water Sports, will host a family fun day on the water tomorrow from 10am.

The event will be held at the Jack Evans Boat Harbour and will include an innovative boat race and underwater pogo stick as well as Vu Board demonstrations by Big Trev’s Water Sports.

Popular children’s cartoon character Ben 10 will appear on stage at the Hundred Hills estate, on the corner of Riveroak Drive and Old Lismore Road, during a free family fun day tomorrow.

Ben 10 will do two stage shows during the day, and face-painting and a sausage sizzle will also be offered.

Animal lovers can attend a Friends of the Hound walk at Cabarita Beach South Side tomorrow at 10am.

A sausage sizzle will be held after the walk to raise much-needed funds for the Tweed charity.

The Currumbin Animal League Op Shop open day will take place tomorrow, with a barbecue, free photo sittings, a live band and the chance to talk to animal welfare volunteers.

The day starts at 9am and will run to 2pm at the AWL Currumbin op shop on Currumbin Creek Road.
