Fes­ti­val of Fun For Kids

Yarrawonga Chronicle - - Front Page -

Mark Sun­day the 20th of May on your cal­en­dars and come along to be a part of the ex­cite­ment that is – Fed­er­a­tion Coun­cil’s Fes­ti­val of Fun for Kids 2018.

With so many things to do in one lo­ca­tion, you can choose your own ad­ven­ture at the num­ber of stalls on of­fer and en­joy the fes­ti­val at your own pace.

The fes­ti­val, to be held at the Corowa Race­course aims to bring the com­mu­nity and fam­i­lies to­gether to es­tab­lish a fun, learn­ing en­vi­ron­ment and to pro­mote Fed­er­a­tion Coun­cil as a tourist and fam­ily des­ti­na­tion.

Fed­er­a­tion Coun­cil Mayor Pat Bourke said Coun­cil is look­ing for­ward to host­ing the Fes­ti­val of Fun for Kids.

“This year’s Fes­ti­val of Fun for Kids is sure to ex­cite Coun­cil’s youngest res­i­dents and vis­i­tors from across the re­gion,” Mayor Bourke said.

“With en­ter­tain­ment rang­ing from PJ Masks, Chrys­tal Valley Mu­sic and The Other Theatre Com­pany, as well as in­ter­ac­tive dis­plays from the Fruit Fly Cir­cus and An­i­mals of Oz, there is some­thing for ev­ery­one at this year’s event.”

In the lead up to the event, schools and res­i­dents will par­tic­i­pate in Sky Light Lanterns Work­shops at St Mary’s Pri­mary School to make their own milk bot­tle lanterns to pa­rade at the con­clu­sion of the fes­ti­val.

Mayor Bourke said Coun­cil has been de­lighted with the over­whelm­ing pos­i­tive re­sponse from lo­cal fam­i­lies and schools to the Fes­ti­val of Fun for Kids.

“See­ing the great re­sponse that we are get­ting so far has been a strong re­minder that events such as this pro­vide the com­mu­nity and Coun­cil with the op­por­tu­nity to con­nect and be in­spired through ed­u­ca­tional pro­grams and en­ter­tain­ment,” he said.

“Coun­cil is for­tu­nate to also have great sup­port be­hind the scenes, in ways of event spon­sor­ship and the many com­mu­nity groups and or­gan­i­sa­tions who will be as­sist­ing in the lead up to, and on the day, and that is some­thing we are re­ally ap­pre­ci­ate of.”
