A mix of old and new activities will be on offer including a silent disco, fun photo-booth, slot car races, trishaw rides, circus skills and the chance to interact with animals. 

Visitors will be able to paint a car while live entertainment from dance group TRACKSUIT, local schools and other groups will be a highlight.

Mayor Barry Sammels said the City was delighted to be able to host the much loved community event once again in 2019. 

“The City of Rockingham is committed to creating a community that is welcoming and inclusive to all people with disability, their families and their carers,” Mayor Sammels said.  

“Celebrate Ability focuses on giving people a chance to learn something about themselves, to try something new, discover an interest or a talent, and of course, connect with others while having fun. I encourage residents to head down to the Gary Holland Community Centre and get involved.”

Auslan interpreters will be available during the event.
