Lydia still loves coming to the Hair-Raising Hat Party. During her childhood, she and her family would dress up and head off to the annual event at Blockhouse Bay Baptist Church.
“I loved everything about the evening; the games, the food, the loot bags, the fun competitions and hanging with my friends and family having such a great time. At home, in the weeks leading up to the party, we’d have fun planning together as a family and making our hats.”
Years on, Lydia and her friend Anna are just two of the many volunteers that will be working together to make the 19th Hat Party a fun event for 4 – 14-year-olds.
As more families join the community, many are discovering the Hat Party for the first time. Some choose to come dressed in a family theme, while others sport individual amazing hats or fancy hairdos. Prizes are awarded across all the age groups for individual hats and hairdos, with a separate family category. Come and join Lydia and Anna at this year’s Hair-Raising Hat Party – mark the date in your diary now and start getting creative.
