Tompkins Park to Transform for Bohemian-inspired Kids Festival

9 October 2018

Tompkins Park will be transformed on Sunday, 4 November for Kidchella, a free, bohemian-inspired festival for children up to 12 years old.

Free attractions include arts and crafts activities, amusement rides, a kids DJ, silent disco, bouncy castles, glitter tattoos, face-painting, giant bubbles and plenty of food trucks to take care of hungry tummies.

Community safety will be interwoven throughout the festival, with Constable Care making a visit along with other community and safety groups.

Children will also have the opportunity to climb aboard a police car and fire truck complete with sirens and flashing lights.

City of Melville Mayor Russell Aubrey said Kidchella is a great opportunity for families to get the kids outdoors and have fun in the community.

“There is lots to see and do and plenty to keep the children entertained, which we know can be a challenge as children are spending more and more time online using computers and other electronic devices.

“Grab the kids, head down to the beautiful Tompkins Park and have a fun-filled day out with us while also learning a little about safety from the local emergency services as well as our own Community Safety Service (CSS) officers and other community groups.”

Kidchella will commence at 10.00am until 2.00pm at the east end of Tompkins Park on Sunday, 4 November 2018.

Free parking is available onsite as well as by gold donation.

The latest iteration of the City of Melville’s Little Hands Festival, which ran annually from 2005-2015 before taking a break in 2016-2017, Kidchella aims to bring the community together and celebrate the role children play in the community as part of National Children’s Week.
