Sue Jodner from the Mareeba Animal Refuge and Clayton Bielby from Colour Frenzy are excited to bring the colourful and fun event to Mareeba this Sunday, May 23

MAREEBA’S Bicentennial Lakes will have a change of colour this coming Sunday as the first Mareeba Colour Frenzy takes place. 

Colour Frenzy first started in 2016 at Toowoomba where it grew and expanded, helping animal rescues around Australia. It has now grown to 25 different locations with Mareeba now being added to that ever-expanding list. 

The Lakes will be lined with fun obstacles and colour stations where people will be sprayed every colour of the rainbow, white clothes are recommended. 

Organiser of Colour Frenzy Clayton Bielby said that Colour Frenzy is all about helping animal refuges around Australia.

“A lot of rescues don’t have the time to fundraise on top of everything else they do,” he said. 

“So, we (Colour Frenzy) try to do the fundraising for them and let them do what they do best.

“We have a starting area, five colour stations, two obstacle stations and a foam station.” 

The idea to bring Colour Frenzy to the Tablelands ensued after Sue Jodner from the Mareeba Animal Refuge witnessed the event in Cairns and thought to bring it up the hill. 

“I am thrilled to bring this event to Mareeba, I saw the event in Cairns on the Esplanade,” she said. 

“I contacted Clayton and they are bringing the whole show to Mareeba. 

“Very excited to bring it to Mareeba, it’s family friendly, it’s colourful, we get people out and about.” 

The money raised from the event will be split between Colour Frenzy to help them organise more events, while the remainder goes back to the Mareeba Animal Refuge. 

Food will be available on the day by the Mareeba Men’s Shed. For more information and to snag yourself a ticket to this colourful event head to the Colour Frenzy website and secure your spot.
