Fun and all that jazz

Central Otago Mirror - - NEWS -

Fancy a lit­tle bouncy cas­tle with your pinot noir? How about some face paint­ing?

Or­gan­is­ers of the Gibb­ston Wine and Food Fes­ti­val have en­sured en­ter­tain­ment for all of the fam­ily at this year’s event.

Andrew Price of the The Chil­dren’s Ac­tiv­i­ties Di­rec­tory and QT Cre­ative Kids is in charge of fam­ily en­ter­tain­ment and will pro­vide bouncy cas­tles, spin paint­ing, face paint­ing by Spit­fire Face Paint­ing, a shaded area to re­lax with some colour­ing, and com­pe­ti­tions in­clud­ing dancing and hula hop­ping.

Big­ger ‘‘kids’’ will be en­ter­tained by the Queen­stown Jazz orches­tra while sam­pling the lo­cal wine and food.

Or­gan­iser Peter Doyle said there would be mu­sic from the big band era of the 1940s and 1950s in­clud­ing Frank Si­na­tra num­bers and more mod­ern Michael Bu­ble in­ter­pre­ta­tions.

Singers would in­clude Doyle and Rachael Ger­ard.

‘‘You can’t beat live jazz with a glass of wine.’’

Com­mit­tee mem­ber Julie Hughes said the fo­cus of the day was around bring­ing people to­gether.

Kids’ stuff: QT Cre­ative Kids will en­ter­tain­chil­dren at the Gibb­ston Wine and Food Fes­ti­val.
