It’s On! in Nelson Bay wraps up first month of programs


NELSON Bay’s newest incentive ‘It’s On!’ is wrapping up its first month of activities with two more weeks of fun.

The program, supported by Port Stephens Council, is designed to get people out and about, trying new things in the heart of Port Stephens.

A representative from the program said, “Over the next six months we’ll be trialling unique experiences to support local businesses and attract people to the town centre.”

It’s On! has already had success with activities including: lunchtime acoustics, Saturday sessions, bootcamps, yoga and ‘Kidzone’ with Reptile displays, Koala talks and giant games.

The final two weeks of the July program have the following activities scheduled:

Tuesday 20 and 27 July- Bootcamp at Apex Park at 7am.

Wednesday 21 and 28 July- Yoga at Apex Park from 11am.

Wednesday 28 July- Library Heroes, story time and music program for preschoolers at Yacaaba St from 10am.

Thursday 22 and 29 July- Lunchtime acoustics at Apex Park from 12pm-2pm.

Saturday 24 and 31 July- Saturday Sessions in Apex Park from 1pm-3pm.

Local musicians Michael Parkes, Nelson Bay Good Times Band and Anyerin Drury will be performing across the Saturday sessions and Lunchtime acoustics, supporting many musicians who have lost work due to COVID-19.

The events are COVID safe following social distancing guidelines, sanitising and face masks.
