KidsFest - Keen Beans for Kiwiana

11 - 15 Jul 2022 | 10:30 AM - 3:00 PM

Aotearoa.....'The Land Of The Long White Cloud", the place we call home. Where Christmas is celebrated in Summer and we are always the first to greet the sun. We created pavlovas (Then the Aussies tried to claim them) and watched Footrot Flats on the Tele. We played with 'Buzzy Bees' and had Hokey Pokey for tea. Its a great life we live in NZ and we want to share it with you these school holidays. Adventure off around Ferrymead this Kidsfest as we explore 'Kiwiana'. With maps in-hand children will set off in search of inventions, Kiwi icons and hands on activities that are sure to delight! Kiwiana certainly wouldn't be the same without biscuit baking so make sure you set time aside to make and then of course eat your very own biscuit! Trams running daily so bring a picnic and make a day of it at Ferrymead Heritage Park this Kidsfest.
