FACES were painted, the popcorn was flowing and cotton candy was blowing in the wind at yesterday's finale to NAIDOC Week celebrations.

About 150 people gathered at the Warwick East Bowls Club to enjoy a fun day of lawn bowls and socialising.

Warwick woman Desley Dennison said she planned to hit the green and enjoy a game of bowls to end the week's celebrations.

"I just came down to have a bit of fun," she said. "I think it is really important for everyone to come together like this."

Community development officer Pam Burley agreed that the day was about unity and fun.

"The social aspect is really important and it is also important that the indigenous community are given an opportunity to acknowledge their culture and come together," she said.

She said it was great to have an entire section devoted to children's activities.

"There is lots of energy here," she said.
