This Saturday, March 21, parents can unleash their children on to a vast playground at Walter Padbury Reserve, Thornlie, featuring sandcastle-building, camel rides, carnival rides, food stalls and live performances.

Taking pride of place will be The Hippo, which bills itself as the world’s largest inflatable slide at almost 12m high and more than 50m long, designed on the same scale as the attractions in water fun parks.

Performers will include Zap Circus, Faerie Cara and the Eco Faeries, the Class Act Performers singing group and children’s entertainment group The Lulus.

Mayor Dave Griffiths said Little Scribblers was always a great way to end Homegrown.

‘Parents are always looking for fun things to entertain little ones on the weekends and I can assure you there will be fun galore at this year’s Little Scribblers,’ he said.

The alcohol/smoke-free event runs from 11am-3pm.
