Kids in the Shed

1 June, 2016

Kids enjoy a performance by Milo the Clown at annual theme event, Kids in the Shed at the Old Bus Depot MarketsThe markets are always a fab place to take the kids for a memorable day out. And at our upcoming Kids in the Shed* theme event on Sunday 12 June, it’s even more fun.

Kids in the Shed is the best day to find your inner child, or just enjoy this family day out for children, parents and grandparents. Kids really love the lively atmosphere of the markets, the yummy food and fun entertainment on offer throughout the day.

This year’s event will include a petting zoo from Bowral Farmyard Friends where the kids can get up close to a variety of farm animals, and pony rides with Poplar Corner Pony Rides. Watch the kids delight as they bounce on the jumping castle from Party Smarties, and joyfully see their faces transformed with Face Painting by Deborah Lane. They can also laugh along with the effervescent Milo the Clown with shows at 11am and 12.20pm, and have a treat or two with fairy floss, popcorn, chip on a stick and more.

The markets will be filled with stacks of products especially for kids including bright, funky, modern handmade clothes, handcrafted toys, accessories, artworks for kids’ bedrooms and much more. Plus many of our regular Sunday stallholders will also be there too.

Kids in the Shed is on Sunday 12 June, open from 10am until 4pm and entry is free.
