WATCHING the State of Origin can be a hassle for families, with pubs not friendly for kids but staying home not enough of an occasion.
In steps Tannum Sands Seagulls to save the day, offering a family friendly environment to watch the 100th match of Origin where kids can have a run around while adults can enjoy a beverage as they would anywhere else.
Dennis Park has recently been equipped with a projector, which will be switched on for the first time tonight to see the big clash.
"It is for everyone, not just the Seagulls but for anyone who wants to get out and enjoy it," organiser Luke Marsh said.
The bar open, a barbeque dinner on offer raising money for the local rugby league club and plenty of space for kids to play their own match before the real one kicks off, Dennis Park is one of the best places around for families to watch the match.
Free entry for the night and a number of crowd involvement activities are planned for the Seagulls opening projector night.
"We will be down there from 6.30pm and people can get dinner from that time," March said.
"There will be raffles and door prizes to make it fun for all of us."
