At the Granny Smith Festival, there is something for everyone. Kids can watch Sam Moran of "Play Along with Sam" fame (and formerly of the Wiggles) and ABC Kids star Nay Nay at the oval stage, while Cedric Irving's Mighty Juggling Show will be on at the Plaza stage. There are also kids' carnival rides, and a new addition this year is the sustainable kids play area located in the grounds of Eastwood Public School.
