This year the popular family festival coincides with Children’s Week (October 19 to 27) and the City of Melville’s Community Safety Month.
Melville Mayor Russell Aubrey said the festival aimed to promote safety for children in support of the 2013 Children’s Week theme ” a child’s right to be safe.
‘With a special focus on children’s safety this year, I strongly encourage families with children aged up to 12 years to enjoy a day out, meet police officers and firemen and pick up a host of safety and crime prevention tips,’ Mr Aubrey said.
‘The festival will include carnival rides, face painting, balloon twisting and pony rides, as well as entertainment for all ages, including the band Cubbihouse, the Wadumbah Dance Group, Drippy Dragon and the Revellers Theatre Co.
‘This really is a fun and free family day out with lots to do and see and plenty of stalls to visit.’
Children are encouraged to dress up as their favourite fairy or wizard to receive their enchanted garden map and see what they can discover.
