The countdown is on to this weekend’s hugely popular Moreton Kids Festival, with families being urged to secure their tickets online now to avoid disappointment.
Thousands are expected to attend this year’s spectacular at Pine Rivers Park, with all the fun to be held from 8am-3pm on Sunday, March 12.
This year’s event will be bigger and better than before, with 26 free activities spread out over five worlds (Fun Kids, Creative Kids, Active Kids, Green Kids and Tiny Tots), as well as eight amusement rides and three stages with live entertainment throughout the day, market stalls, showbags, food trucks and more.
This year’s headline act is JJ from the popular children’s show Cocomelon who will be appearing live on the Ausbuild main stage. Children will be able to dance and sing along with JJ when he performs at 10am and noon.
Your kids will also love the Mini Picasso workshops where they can unleash their inner artist, design and make their own flower crowns, pat and cuddle the adorable baby animals at the animal farm, or try their hand at yoga.
There will also be a special community engagement zone where kids can look inside an ambulance, use the fire hose on a rural fire fighting truck, sound the sirens on a police car and much more!
Moreton Bay Regional Council Mayor Peter Flannery says Moreton Kids Festival takes the fuss out of planning a family day out and delivers a jam-packed program guaranteed to entertain the little ones.
“There will be fun for everyone with entertainment and activities across five worlds of fun and multiple stages,” Mayor Flannery says.
“As a parent, it can be hard to plan a day out with young children – which is what makes Moreton Kids Festival perfect. It has all the entertainment, close parking and facilities young families need.”
This event is perfect for children under 10 years of age.
Moreton Kids Festival is proudly presented by Moreton Bay Region Industry & Tourism (MBRIT) and supported by strategic partner Moreton Bay Regional Council, main stage sponsor Ausbuild, education partner Tafe Queensland, gold sponsors Sun Kids, Sesame Lane Care & Kindergarten, Birali Steiner School, Dominos Strathpine and Peter Dutton MP and community sponsors Platypus Dental, The Lakes College, Chrysalis Dental Care and Nikki Boyd MP.
