Foam, coloured powder and graffiti all made an appearance at this year's Bring it On! Festival on Sunday hailed by organisers as the 'best yet'.

The inaugural Rainbow Run was the highlight of the state's biggest and best celebration of youth culture with participants enjoying a fun obstacle course on the Fairfield Showground's new festival arena, while being splashed in coloured powder.

Thousands attended the event which culminated in a Foam Dance Party hosted by popular Australian performer DJ Tigerlily.

Mental health was a key theme at this year's event with service providers on hand throughout the afternoon to offer information and support to interested young people.

Fairfield mayor Frank Carbone said it was "exciting"to see young people enjoying the new facilities at the Fairfield Showground.

"The Rainbow Run was especially exciting. It was a fun celebration of our rich and diverse multicultural community. It was great to see so many people walking around covered in colour during the afternoon," he said.

"I would like to thank our sponsors, community partners and more than 150 dedicated volunteers for all their hard work."
