RUGBY league fans and residents in the Logan area are encouraged to get into the spirit of Harmony Day and join in with the celebrations tomorrow, Friday, March 21.

There will be a street parade from 10am-11am before the festivities kick off officially at 11am at Logan Gardens (near Civic Centre Park).

The parade will begin at the Logan Central Shopping Plaza and travel up Wembley Road, finishing at Logan Gardens.

The Harmony Day celebrations represent the culmination of the QRL’s Harmony Program which was launched last year.

Students from schools from across the area will take part in both the parade and the activities; while other entertainment includes stage performances, workshops and a Sports Zone.

There will also be an Arcade, a Kids Corner and number stalls including food and general stalls.

The rugby league activities will be a combination of Rugby League One Community presentations and activities that include skills sessions and games.

NRL Community Engagement Officer Petero Civoniceva will take part in the day, as will former NRL player David Solomona. Brisbane Broncos players David Stagg and Mitchell Dodds are also expected to take part in the day of family fun.

The event will officially close at 3.30pm.

It will be Sydney’s turn to host festivities on Saturday at Jamison Park, Penrith before the Panthers v Bulldogs match at Sportingbet Stadium.

Harmony Day coincides with the United Nations International Day of the Elimination of Racial Discrimination.
