Family fun in glorious sun

THE glorious weather on the weekend meant lots of Ipswich families were out enjoying their days off.

Two of the weekend's biggest attractions were the Rosewood Festival and the Spartan Race at Peak Crossing.

Festival-goers in Rosewood were treated to a trolley dash, wheelie bin races, gum boot throwing, a hay bale scramble and plenty of live entertainment.

Members from Just Rock Ipswich showed off some of their signature moves to the crowd of watchers before inviting them to join in the fun.

And for the men in the crowd, there was a display of Just Rock Classic cars.

There was also plenty of fun for the little ones, with balloons, face painting, circus activities, craft activities and more.

The same could not be said for the competitors of the Spartan race, who did not have such a relaxing day.

Participants had to run, climb, jump, swing, crawl and dodge their way through 20 obstacles, pushing their bodies to the limit as they completed the difficult course.
