[AU] Out in the Open Festival - Shepparton, Victoria - 14-16 November 2014

One of Regional Australia's most prominent and tireless equality campaigners is Damien Stevens in Shepparton, Victoria.  Damien has let us know of the "Out in the Open" Festival happening in Shepparton on 14-16th November 2014 and some events that are Rainbow Family related.

There is the  OUTintheOPEN Festival Shepparton's colouring competition and they would love to receive some entries via post.  Come kids get creative!

The Carnival Day is very family friendly and it is held in  Shepparton on Saturday 15th November 2014:

" We've aimed to make Carnival Day very family friendly! The day will start with a 10am book reading @ the GV Library - titles including "Mommy, Mama & Me", "Daddy, Papa & Me" & "Who's In A Family?"."

A rarity these days, but  Carnival Day is FREE, and has space for rainbow families to set out picnic rugs, and jump on the jumping castle. Lots of stalls, food, performers, and more fun than you can poke a stick it will be on offer from 10.30am - 4.00pm!

There is simply no reason not to attend.  Apart from having a great time with the family you will also be helping and supporting our regional GLBTI family and friends.  Shep is only a couple of hours up the freeway from Melbourne and there is plenty of great accommodation in town to suit every budget.
