WITH a fashion parade, live performances, game show re-enactments and interactive workshops the second Walk It Out event is expected to be even bigger and better this year.

A part of National Youth Week, and organised by Kiro Ministry and Westside Community Care, the event aims to reach out to the 12 to 25-year-olds in the region.

Event co-ordinator Stacey Aunei said the event, which was drug and alcohol free, aimed to help change the attitudes of young people in the area so they would “walk it out and give everything a go”.

“It's not just about the actual day though, it's more the end of program celebrations,” she said, adding art and modelling workshops had been held in the lead up to the event.

“All the events are free, and the information stalls are all practical. For example the music stall will have a music booth where you can record yourself.

“It's all stuff you can get your hands into.”

Ms Aunei said they were expecting up to 1500 youths to attend the event.

The Walk It Out event will be held at Orion Town Centre in Springfield on Thursday, April 7, from 5pm to 9pm.
