Cap­tain Bar­na­cles in line-up

Pilbara News - - Lifestyle - Louise Alling­ham

The Oc­to­nauts’ Cap­tain Bar­na­cles is head­ing to Wick­ham for the town’s an­nual fam­ily event.

Res­i­dents from Wick­ham and its sur­round­ing ar­eas are in­vited to at­tend the free event on Satur­day, July 16, from 3pm-6pm at the Wick­ham Pic­ture Gar­dens.

Cap­tain Bar­na­cles is the main char­ac­ter from the in­ter­na­tion­ally pop­u­lar Dis­ney chil­dren’s se­ries The Oc­to­nauts.

The Oc­to­nauts are underwater ad­ven­tur­ers who dive into ac­tion when there is trou­ble in the ocean.

Cap­tain Bar­na­cles will put on a show to en­ter­tain chil­dren, and af­ter­wards there will be a meet-and-greet ses­sion for fans.

The show is suit­able for chil­dren un­der 10.

Wick­ham Com­mu­nity As­so­ci­a­tion pres­i­dent Fiona White-Har­tig said organisers were very ex­cited to have such a pop­u­lar and high-pro­file act join in this year’s fam­ily event.

“It is im­por­tant to the WCA to de­liver op­por­tu­ni­ties that will en­cour­age pos­i­tive en­gage­ment of our youth and chil­dren in Wick­ham,” she said.

“The Wick­ham Fam­ily Event gives the com­mu­nity a chance to ac­cess high qual­ity en­ter­tain­ment that is not read­ily avail­able in our re­gion, and has been wildly suc­cess­ful in the past for par­tic­i­pa­tion and sat­is­fac­tion.”

She said it was an easy de­ci­sion to in­vite the Oc­to­naut skip­per to Wick­ham af­ter the suc­cess of Peppa Pig’s visit at last year’s fam­ily event. As well as the show, chil­dren can en­joy get­ting their faces painted and a bouncy cas­tle.

There will also be show­bags, bal­loons and sweet treats in­clud­ing fairy floss, ice cream and pop­corn for them to en­joy.

The Wick­ham Fam­ily Event is sup­ported by the City of Kar­ratha.
