Bring your kids to the Black Snake Creek Festival

There will be loads of fun and free things for your kids at the Black Snake Creek Festival (October 9 all day).

Free workshops - playdoh and origami.

Competitions - trivia and a colouring in competition with great prizes.

Skateboarding competition and demonstration.

Face-painting and roving entertainers will be there.

There will also be a show by the Fabulous Lemon Drops called "Everything's Gone Green."

Join us on a musical, environmental journey through the Australian bush. We will meet a variety of Australian animals, including a dancing frog and a rock 'n' roll koala while exploring some simple environmental themes. The themes include recycling, wildlife conservation and water saving, and are introduced through the stories of colourful animal characters and high-energy music.
Kite artist, Tony Rice will also be offering kite-making workshops for kids. Kids aged 5-12 can book on the day for $3 and create their own kite.
