Father's Day's family festival

THE fifth annual Fatherhood Festival will be held in Bangalow this weekend.

It is a unique three-day community event with music, seminars, comedy and activities for children.

Best-selling author and well-known psychologist and fatherhood expert Steve Biddulph has also donated his time to the festival.

Festival Director Col George said Mr Biddulph, like other speakers and performers, was volunteering his time for the festival 'because they know we are here to support families through Fatherhood'.

Mr George said the festival had become a flagship for other festivals around Australia, including those in Perth, Taree and Forbes.
