Thanks to all the RAINBOW FAMILIES that came along for a morning of fun in the sun at the inaugural Midsumma Beach Bash. Around 80 rainbow family members braved the early morning start at Cromwell Park beside picturesque Malabar beach for surf side shenanigans.

Despite the previous day’s gloomy weather, Sunday turned out to be a beautiful morning with the sun shining down and the water lapping warmly on the shore.

Festivities kicked off at 9am, sharp. Everyone faced off for an epic tug of war, the rainbow kids raced for first place across the beach and ‘architecturally designed’ sand castles vied for pride of place amongst incredible sea turtle and mermaid creations.

Snacks were shared, juices were drunk, the raffle was drawn... all-in-all a wonderful morning by the beach was had by all.
