On Sunday 6 October, the Geelong community descended on Kardinia Park for the second year in a row to enjoy a jam-packed day of FREE family sporting fun and entertainment.
The day kicked off with a brand new Geelong Kids Triathlon before the Kardinia Park Precinct filled with more than 60 ‘come and try’ activations and over 14,000 people celebrating physical activity, health and sport in our region.
Festival-goers had the chance to try interactive squash, ten pin bowling, virtual sailing and stand up paddle boarding on the Kardinia Pool, just to name a few.
On top of Australian sporting staples such as Aussie Rules, soccer and tennis, participants had the unique opportunity to witness medieval jousting displays, sing along to Geelong kids entertainment icons the Mik Maks, and to view the Stadium through Geelong Football Club Charles Brownlow Stand tours.
As with many events, 2020 will see the festival have a year off due to COVID-19. We look forward to the Festival of Sport returning in 2021.
