Colour, Fun and the Community

on the Thursday, January 13, 2022

Bigger and better than last year’s Colour Fest, Regis Port Coogee’s infamous event is now forged into the November calendar for their residents, families and friends! After the success of the first Colour Fest in 2020, the team Regis Port Coogee have outdone themselves by hosting a spirited and colourful event for the Regis Port Coogee community, even more memorable than the last.

Resident Margo shared, “it was good fun, messy fun, the best day and I thoroughly enjoyed every moment.”

Residents and families spent the day celebrating colour abundantly! Body art and hand painting, art therapy with colour on canvas and creativity bloomed through t-shirt painting. However, these activities all led to the main event. 

To the tune of ‘Baby Elephant Walk’ by Henry Mancini, residents and employees launched six kilograms of colour powder into the air to transform their white t-shirts and hats into striking clothing and accessories of fun and colour. Residents at Regis Port Coogee are still talking about the event days later!

“A spectacle of excitement, smiles and just good fun shared by all ages, residents and employees – a total explosion of colour!” – Sarah Pickersgill, Lifestyle Coordinator at Regis Port Coogee.
