Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - 2016 YOUR GUIDE TO CHRISTMAS -

MORE than 400 chil­dren and their par­ents gath­ered on the Perth Zoo’s main lawn for the 2016 Va­ri­ety WA Kids Christ­mas Party.

Ac­tiv­i­ties in­cluded a Christ­mas sack race, tug of war, jump­ing cas­tles, an­i­mal hospi­tal, hula hoops, face-paint­ing and a visit from Santa.

Each child re­ceived a white Christ­mas bear along with a present from Santa.

Christ­mas shows in­cluded Free­dom Fairies, The Lu­lus and Spike Stage Show, Perth Zoo Keeper Stage Show and en­ter­tain­ment from four of Va­ri­ety WA’s tal­ented 2016 schol­ar­ship re­cip­i­ents.

The Teenage Mu­tant Ninja Tur­tles dropped in for a sur­prise visit and joined Elmo, Kevin the Min­ion and Santa Claus for some great photo op­por­tu­ni­ties with the kids.

The party was made pos­si­ble by the gen­eros­ity of the Stan Per­ron Char­i­ta­ble Trust, Lot­tery­west and in­di­vid­ual donors.
