Big treats in store for children
CHILDREN and the young at heart scored a big hug and a friendly wave from dragon and viking Gobber and Gronckle during the start of school holiday fun at Plumpton Marketplace.
The stars of How to Train Your Dragon and ABC TV’s Dragons Defenders of Berk, arrived at the shopping centre for daily meet and greets last week.
But marketing manager Rebecca Carrig said the school holiday fun was set to continue with a craft village on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 11am-2pm.
“Children can come and create their own Viking shield,” Ms Carrig said.
“It’s been really great to see kids’ reactions and interesting to watch those who obviously recognise and know the characters by name.”
Ms Carrig said there would be plenty more exciting times ahead at the shopping centre this year as Father’s Day approaches and Christmas not long after.
She encouraged any one who takes pictures of their children with the characters or during craft activities in the shopping centre to share them on Facebook and Instagram and tag Plumpton Marketplace.
