The Bellarine’s biggest Free Family Fun Day returns to the Potato Shed.
With over 8000 attendees in 2016 and growing, the event has become one of the best children’s events held annually in the Geelong region.
The free event has something for families of all ages including an animal farm, jumping castles, a cubby house photobooth, face painting, live performances and interactive music sessions.
There’s parking and toilets available, and the site is wheelchair accessible.
It is a hub of fun activity throughout the day with an outdoor and indoor stage filled with an array of performances, a dedicated sports zone for those who have plenty of energy to burn and everybody’s beloved – the animal farm will keep children mesmerised for hours.
The Potato Shed’s favourite entertainers the Mik Maks are back again to bring music to kid’s ears and have them up and dancing along with The Funky Mummies, Jays Dance School Hip Hop and Mini Maestros with Bumblebee.
New items on the program this year include:
The St John CPR Lab – an exciting way to help people learn and restore their CPR skills for free, which will be held in the Sports Zone.
The Trash Puppets will hold puppet making workshops. Children will be able to learn and make their own puppets to take home. There will also be roving puppets moving through the crowds.
Dazzling Dan – the magician will be opening in the theatre this year before the pantomime which will be Mother Goose.
Netball Victoria – join us for the first time to teach children how to play netball in the Sports Zone.
This year we anticipate even more people attending and enjoying the experience, a wonderful way to kick off Children’s Week on the Bellarine.
Gates open at the Potato Shed at 11am, Sunday 22 October, with activities continuing until 3pm.
The Potato Shed is at 41 Peninsula Drive, Drysdale.
