NEW: Mark your diaries for ‘Christmas Kids’

4 October, 2016

Christmas cupcakes at the Old Bus Depot MarketsYou’re all familiar with our annual Kids in the Shed event held each June, well this year we’re doing something extra special for the kids at the market in Summer – and right near every child’s favourite time of year, Christmas! The new, and first ever held,  Christmas Kids is the perfect family day out – summer sunshine, the markets, Christmas decorations, plenty for the littlies to do and see and a lively festive buzz.

Held for the first time ever on Saturday 3 December, Christmas Kids will have the kids laughing at our cheeky resident elf entertaining the crowds from The Fool Factory, they can get up close to the animals with a petting zoo from Bowral Farmyard Friends, enjoy pony and donkey rides from Poplar Corner, and giggle and play with face painting and a jumping castle from Party Smarties for extra fun. There will be lots of surprises and deliciously fun food and of course, many of our regular stallholders will be onsite with fabulous Christmas gift ideas.

The big man in red, Santa Claus, will also be on his throne and ready for photos with the kiddies. Santa will be at the markets all day for Christmas Kids, 10am to 4pm. Then again on 4th, 10th, 11th, 17th and 18th December from 12.00 – 3.00pm.

Admission is free but fees apply for some kids’ activities on the day.
