Kids in the Park is just around the corner

Burnie Park is set to undergo a magical transformation in preparation for Burnie City Council’s Kids in the Park event.

Families are encouraged to head along to Kids in the Park held at Burnie Park on Sunday 27 March 2016 to experience a little bit of Easter magic. Held annually, this free, family oriented event will run from 12noon until 4.30pm.

Burnie City Council Mayor Anita Dow said “Council looks forward to putting this event on every year because it’s all about having good old fashioned family fun.”

“Kids in the Park is a wonderful opportunity to bring families together, where everyone can be hands on and get involved in the great activities that we have planned. The event is designed for children under 12, however we love seeing people of all ages joining in on the fun on the day.”

“It doesn’t matter if you’re a grandparent, parent guardian or carer, Kids in the Park is the perfect place to bring your children and do what kids do best, play.”

As in previous years, Kids in the Park will be jam-packed with fun activities including a Mad Hatter’s Tea Party; the giant downhill slide; the Battle Castle; a fairy kingdom – where fairies are invited to wear their best costume and join in fairy dance lessons or play the magical harp;; face painting; food and live music from Kitty Martini & the Tom Collins Trio.

And it wouldn’t be Kids in the Park without a special guest appearance from Easter Bunny who will be on hand to help with the traditional Easter egg hunt.

“The popularity of Kids in the Park grows every year, with nearly 4,000 people attending last year. We would love to see those same numbers, if not more, again this year,” Ald Dow said.
