Carnivale the grand finale to Hills Festival
Words by Jodie Powell

Hills Carnivale this Saturday, May 27, brings to a close four weeks of events held as part of the Hills Festival program. 

The annual Hills Carnivale at George Willmore Park from noon-7pm is a favourite among locals and visitors alike, transforming the park into a family friendly precinct with a whole host of fun activities.

Kids Zone

The Hills Carnivale Kids Zone is the go-to place to keep the littlies busy at George Willmore Park. 

From noon-6pm the Kids Zone will feature free workshops, activities, face painting and laser tag.

With an animal meet and greet, dedicated kids’ stage and live shows, the zone is a firm favourite.

Ride Zone

The Ride Zone is back at Hills Carnivale for 2023, with a huge selection of carnival rides for all ages for $2.

Thrill-seekers should head on over to the rock wall, obstacle course, giant slide, or the eternal favourite dodgem cars.

And for those looking for something a little tamer there’s plenty on offer with the merry-go-round, inflatable slide, jumping castle, and teacups.

Main Stage

Get your friends and family together to celebrate everything that is the Hills Carnivale.

The main stage will feature a program of local musicians, groovy tunes, and live entertainment.

Performers will take to stage from noon-7pm - make sure you bring a picnic blanket or camping chair to unwind for an evening of Hills festivities.
