Grin and bear it
Koen Summers, 9, of Sydney grins as his face is painted to look like his teddy bear Harold during the Sydney Waterfront Festival teddy bear picnic Wednesday evening at Wentworth Park in Sydney. The event also included outdoor games, music by Vanna White in character as Elsa from the movie “Frozen” and a station where kids could have their stuffed friends checked out by teddy bears doctors. It was followed by an outdoor screening of the movie “Finding Dory” in the park bandshell.
