Dinosaurs, Fairy-tale Characters and Magic Comes to Auckland’s ASB Showgrounds!
From amazing walking animatronic dinosaurs, to favourite fairy-tale characters, hourly magic shows, free amusement rides, games, face painting and live entertainment, the Kids Fair is an event for parents as well as toddlers to teens!
Event Director and creator of Australasia’s largest pulp-culture event the Armageddon Expo, William Geradts believes the wait is over for an affordable and family friendly event to enjoy this summer.
“While January tends offers a lot of music festivals or sporting occasions, there’s not a lot of anything that specifically caters specifically to kids aged 2-15 and their families,” he says.
“We’re hoping to change that through offering an event that’s accessible and affordable to attend, is lots of fun and above all, full of things for kids and their parents to be able to enjoy together,” he said.
Key highlights of this weekend include:
+ LIVE stage shows from the hugely popular Weta Workshop creation The WotWots and the iconic The Moe Show
+ Signing sessions with members from the SkyCity Breakers on Saturday from 1pm – 2.30pm
+ FREE amusement rides throughout the weekend and a daily Candy Race
+ Hourly magic shows with Cornflake the Clown
+ Photo opportunities with all your favourite fairy-tale characters and super animatronic dinosaur ‘Terry the T-Rex’
+ And halls full of exhibitors showcasing everything from toys to games, food and furniture.
“We’re bringing family fun to Auckland in a way that hasn’t been seen in some time,” says Geradts.
“A great day for kids and for parents wanting to get out and enjoy this amazing summer with their family!”
