Children’s Day 2016

WOW! Children’s Day 2016 was our third Children’s Day and we think it was our biggest and best yet. The event took place over two days, Saturday 23rd and Sunday 24th April at the ASB Showgrounds, and to see you all having such a great time with your families showed us that we accomplished all that we intended to.

On both days, the atmosphere was overflowing with joy and happiness. Families were lining up an hour prior to the event starting and once we opened those doors, there was nothing quite like witnessing the gasps of excitement and wide eyes of the children as they entered Children’s Day and were overwhelmed with where to begin.

The happiness was infectious. There was an abundance of things to do, many of the families headed straight for the free candy floss and popcorn because let’s be honest, you can’t really go past it.

In terms of entertainment, Children’s Day had performances from a magician, various dancing schools, lion dancing, and Mainly Music were doing regular music sessions.

We even had a visit from the ever popular Sid from Ice Age who was giving out plenty of cuddles and high-fives.

The petting zoo was (as always) a favourite among the littles ones. As they patted, nuzzled and feed the little animals.

From the bouncy castles and mini jeeps, to the ferris wheel and giant inflatable slides, AND all the rides in between – there certainly wasn’t a shortage in attractions.

Children even had the chance to decorate their own cookies with a little help from Elsa and Auna from Frozen.

Among the entertainment for parents was of course the variety of stalls Children’s Day facilitated, majority of which had special deals exclusive for Children’s Day event attendees.

There were delectable treats, a huge range of toys, resources, and children wear. Almost anything child-related you could think of was available at the stalls at Children’s Day.
