SNOW Slide will return to Perth in July to mark the winter school holidays.

The free City of Perth event is for kids aged 3-12 and will be held in Forrest Place.

Event tickets, which must be secured online in advance, will be released at 10am Monday June 27 for week one sessions (2-9 July) and 10am Monday July 4 for week two sessions (10-17 July).

With a 12m slide for kids over 110cm tall and a 4m slide for smaller kids, each of the twelve 25-minute sessions daily can accommodate 130 children, with a total of four able to ride the two-lane slides at any one time. This will allow almost 25,000 kids to get a ticket to slide.

Tickets for every session will be available to book on a ‘first in, first served’ basis from the moment they are released online.

To book tickets an email address and a free Oztix account will be required.

There will be free activities at the Perth Town Hall’s Wild Life Show, running from 28 June until 20 July.

The show will feature a live petting zoo, flora and fauna displays, kids’ workshops (bookings required), and a history exhibition on the Wild Life Shows of the 1950s and ‘60s.
