Family Fun Day @ Woodhouse Grove Kinder

I count myself lucky to be born in Australia's coffee capital of Melbourne and love to write about what's on in my home town.
Have you ever ridden a vintage fire engine?
As the weather warms and daylight hours extend into mid evening, out of hibernation come the sausage sizzles, lucky dips and cake stalls that are hallmarks of a good old fashioned school fete.

Nestled against a backdrop of leafy gums on an unassuming suburban street, Woodhouse Grove Kindergarten enjoys a cosy side street location just a few hundred metres from the Station Street exit of the Eastern Freeway.

Woodhouse Grove Kindergarten enjoys a leafy locale.

Like many state kindergartens, Woodhouse Grove depends on support from the local community to fund upgrades and improvements to their facilities. Enter the Family Fun Day.

This Sunday 26 October 2014 from 10am to 2pm, the Woodhouse Grove Kindergarten will play host to a family friendly event that includes many traditional and new favourites - like craft, plant, market and cake stalls, lucky dips, a sausage sizzle, lolly-guess jar, AFL footy handball competition, balloonist, Choc Toss, Vintage Fire Engine rides (note: operating between 10.30am-12.30pm only), Thomas and Friends U-drive and children's entertainment by the popular Hey Dee Ho Music.

Entry to the Family Fun Day is by gold coin donation.

Plenty of play and picnic room at Tassell's Park, Box Hill North

Afterwards, if the kids still have energy to burn or you fancy a BBQ or picnic lunch, head across the road to Tassells Park, where there is plenty of open space and a good selection of playground equipment suited to a broad range of abilities and ages.

Seriously guys, we can ride there - just follow me!

If you live locally, you could even make use of the nearby Koonung Creek Trail to ride your bike or scooter to the fun day, and save the hassle of finding a car park - although there is street parking available.
