Get ready Mathoura
THE Mathoura Country Kids Festival kicks off tomorrow.
Primary and preschoolers will see what it’s like to run the town while celebrating being a country kid.
The town’s main street and park will be transformed into a ‘big day out’ for children from all over the district.
A petting zoo, toy library, face painting, market stalls, live entertainment, a skate competition, raffles and sausage sizzle are some of the activities planned for the day.
The children have also decided to import crowd-pleasers from Bendigo-based entertainment experts The Zone, which will operate a large open air laser tag arena, inflatable Zorb balls floating in pools and an 8m Cars-themed slide.
Entry is a gold coin and all ride passes are priced from $5 to $20.
The proceeds will fund education initiatives at the two Mathoura schools.
