The Burnie City Council advise that The Burnie Challenge and Kids in the Park Easter events have been cancelled in line with the Prime Minister's advice that all mass gatherings over 500 people should not go ahead due to the Coronavirus pandemic.

Burnie City Council Mayor Steve Kons said “we understand that this is very disappointing news for the many people involved in these community events including volunteers, but also that everyone understands the safety and well-being of everyone in our community must take priority at this time.”

Council is reviewing other events and programming and will base any decisions on information from the Chief Health Officer, or Director of Public Health.
