What’s on at the Fair!

There is something for the whole family at this year’s Christmas themed Very Special Kids Fair on Saturday 19 November 2016.

Starting at 9am and running until 3pm, children will have the opportunity to meet Transformer’s Optimus Prime, My Little Pony’s Twilight Sparkle and Mr Potato Head!

It wouldn’t be a Christmas Fair without a visit from our favourite friend from the North Pole. Between 930am and 230pm, children can have a beautiful photo taken with Santa and receive an early Christmas present.

Join in and get energised by a footy handball competition featuring former North Melbourne and St Kilda star Nick Dal Santo and St Kilda legend Leigh Montagna. You’ll also see mascots from the Western Bulldogs, Sydney Swans and Melbourne FC.

The Kids Activities Area will be jam-packed with exhilarating activities including bungy trampolines, an animal farm and a fire truck. Children can also have their faces painted, try their luck with lucky-dips and participate in fun craft activities.

Get your Christmas shopping out of the way at the market selling a range of beautiful homewares, homemade children’s nursery bedding, plants, toys and Christmas decorations. And with a silent auction on the day, you’re sure to find something special.

Those with a sweet tooth will love a visit to the cakes, jams and preserves stall, and those looking to relax will love the garden, fresh flowers and a cafe. Adults can also join in the fun of the lucky dip at the wine lucky-dip and raffle.

With all this excitement, you’re bound to work up a hunger. Find something tasty to eat at one of the many food stands including BBQ and burgers, Greek food, souvlaki, pancakes and Italian food. You can even make your own smoothie at the Bike n’ Blend stand. And when the feet start to tire from all the excitement, the massage booth is the place to be.

On the same day and just a short walk away, Very Special Kids are also holding a Fashion Sale at Malvern Town Hall with top brands slashed to 90% off! Read more here.

With all proceeds going to helping Very Special Kids continue to support families and children with life-threatening conditions, this is one event not to be missed!
