Great turnout at Perth Zoo for Variety WA Kids Christmas Party

MORE than 400 children and their parents gathered on the Perth Zoo’s main lawn for the 2016 Variety WA Kids Christmas Party.

Activities included a Christmas sack race, tug of war, jumping castles, animal hospital, hula hoops, face-painting and a visit from Santa.

Each child received a white Christmas bear along with a present from Santa.

Christmas shows included Freedom Fairies, The Lulus and Spike Stage Show, Perth Zoo Keeper Stage Show and entertainment from four of Variety WA’s talented 2016 scholarship recipients.

The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles dropped in for a surprise visit and joined Elmo, Kevin the Minion and Santa Claus for some great photo opportunities with the kids.

The party was made possible by the generosity of the Stan Perron Charitable Trust, Lotterywest and individual donors.
