No one to miss out as kids catered for at festival
PARENTS of young children will find a place to relax at the Children’s Zone in Weeroona Park during the 2020 Apple and Grape Harvest Festival.
The Children’s Zone, located near the Paddy Ryan Bandshell, will offer activities for primary school aged children, including craft workshops and activities, sandcastle building, face painting, stage entertainment, balloon artists, a petting zoo and more.
A nursing mothers’ tent and first aid tent will also be located in the Children’s Zone.
Apple and Grape Harvest Festival president Max Hunter said the Children’s Zone would enhance families’ enjoyment of the Apple and Grape Harvest Festival, especially parents with young children.
Siting the Children’s Zone near the Wine and Food Fiesta would allow parents to enjoy the fiesta, while their children played nearby, he said.
“Although parents will be required to supervise their kids in the children’s zone, its proximity to the Wine and Food Fiesta means that they will still be able to enjoy the wine, food and great entertainment in that section of Weeroona Park.”
The Children’s Zone has been made possible by funding by the Foundation for Rural and Regional Renewal Tackling Tough Times program and sponsorship from Woolworths.
The children’s zone will open from 10am–5pm on March 7–8. Entry will be via the Wine and Food Fiesta entrance. Children will be admitted free of charge.
The 2020 Apple and Grape Harvest Festival will be held from February 28 to March 8.
