The Mandurah Children’s Festival is on this weekend, and families are encouraged to come along and explore the theme ‘communication’ with free activities, entertainment and learning opportunities.

The annual festival will be held this Sunday, October 20 on the Eastern Foreshore and there will be so much to see and do with something fun for everyone. The festival coincides with National
Children’s Week.

Highlights of this year’s festival include free on-stage entertainment from 10am-3pm, rides and games, learning stations, family friendly activities plus delicious food vans and market stalls.

Festival-goers young and young at heart can explore the past and present ways to communicate with a number of interactive workshops including making string and cup telephones, invisible ink, reading braille, postcards, emojis and so much more.

The ever-popular Mandurah Men’s Shed stall will again be at the Mandurah Children’s Festival, where children can paint a wooden toy for a gold coin donation.

The dress up competition is always a crowd pleaser, and this year the communication-themed costumes will be paraded on stage at 10.35am, with the winners being announced on stage at 11.45am.

There are some great prizes up for grabs, so register now online.

Children can also go in the running to win the grand prize of an iPad – just grab a stamp card and collect stamps by participating in the free workshops to be in with a chance.

The Mandurah Children’s Festival is a dog-free, alcohol-free and smoke-free event, and inclusive for all abilities with Changing Places bathroom facilities, rest spots and an Auslan interpreter on the main stage.
