Get ready to party, kids

Deniliquin Pastoral Times - - OUT & ABOUT -

Ex­cite­ment is build­ing for De­niliquin’s fa­mous Sun Fes­ti­val, which will start with the tra­di­tional Chil­dren’s Party on Fri­day, Jan­uary 13.

The Sun Fes­ti­val, which also in­cludes Aus­tralia Day cel­e­bra­tions, uses the beau­ti­ful War­ing Gar­dens as its base.

The Chil­dren’s Party aims to pro­vide en­ter­tain­ment and fun for fam­i­lies and chil­dren.

The Great Gizmo will re­turn with his new­est, spooky char­ac­ter to tie in with the Fri­day the 13th date.

There will be a fancy dress com­pe­ti­tion for those who dress in a ‘spook’ theme and prizes for best dressed chil­dren’s bi­cy­cles.

The Fu­sion group will pro­vide free ac­tiv­i­ties such as face paint­ing and minigames, en­sur­ing the lit­tle ones are kept en­ter­tained.

Rides will also re­turn this year, in­clud­ing the pop­u­lar merry-go-round and slot cars, all of which are free of charge and fun for all.

Fes­ti­val chair­man Geoff Ri­ley said Dar­ryl’s Farm­yard may also re­turn to the fes­ti­val in 2017, de­pend­ing on the weather con­di­tions. In the farm­yard, chil­dren get the op­por­tu­nity to get up close and per­sonal with chick­ens, goats, pigs and other an­i­mals.

Food and drinks will be pro­vided through­out the day, in­clud­ing a fam­i­ly­favourite ice­cream stand to help keep you cool on a hot sum­mer’s day.
