Supporters give peace a chance at Peak Crossing
IPSWICH celebrated International Day of Peace in tranquil surrounds on Saturday.
People gathered at the Ivory Rock Convention centre outside Peak Crossing to commemorate a Peace Fair.
Along with stallholders, food and performers from the Scenic Rim and Ipswich regions there were screenings of short documentaries. The day culminated in the donation of a peace tree from the Ipswich City Council.
Cr David Pahlke was on hand to donate the tree and speak to the crowd about the importance of the day.
He said working towards a goal of peace was one he strove for and said he hoped many others shared his goals.
By the end of the fair the tree was covered in pledges made by people in attendance calling for peace.
The fair also offered "peace walks" through the picturesque bushland surrounding the centre.
The day was aligned with the United Nations Day of Peace, Peace for People and a number of other international peace initiatives.
