Colour of fun

Despite several postponements and wet weather, almost 1000 people converged on the Rosny Parklands to take part in the 2024 Hobart Colour Frenzy.

The family-friendly event featured a non-competitive fun walk/run with multiple colour, bubble and obstacle stations along the route.

Many participants were accompanied by their canine companions, with the event welcoming dogs of all sizes to join in the fun.

Some of the funds raised from the event contributed to Colour Frenzy’s overall goal of raising $250,000 for local animal rescue services across Australia in 2024.

Persistent rain could not deter the enthusiasm of attendees with many claiming the wild conditions enhanced the fun.

“We have had such a fun day. After a while, being covered in paint and completely soaked doesn’t bother you,” one participant said.

“It’s been great to do something like this as a family, there were so many activities for the kids and we love that its dog friendly.”

“My favourite part was the bubble station and getting my medal at the end,” another participant said.
