Volunteers are an integral part of an event such as this, and if you're interested in helping out, get your details on the website as are registration. Volunteers are needed for both the Christmas Gift Wrapping (running 3-24 Dec) in Adelaide Arcade promenade between Grenfell St & Rundle Mall, and Christmas Carols and Markets at Minda Brighton.
There's plenty to enjoy with friends and family at an event filled with entertainment and some of Adelaide's best food trucks and amusements, including the tea cups ride, climbing wall, petting zoo, bumper cars, bouncy castle, face painting and of course, Santa! The Rotary Club of Somerton Park are back serving up sausages and burgers. With over 30 stallholders amongst bunting-strewn stalls at the market selling a range of quality items, they have your Christmas gift list covered!
Weighted blankets offer proprioceptive or deep touch pressure (DTP) to the body. It is a firm tactile sensory input that provides proprioceptive input to the whole body, like firm hugs, compression, or swaddling. It has a calming, organising effect on children and adults alike. It's important to consider weight and fabric, so it's only heavy enough to provide DTP, but not so heavy it poses a safety risk during sleep. Lap pads or pillows are much the same but on a smaller scale. Get advice and information from your health specialist.
After a long day out with the kids, parents might want to kick on with an after party once the kiddies are safely tucked in bed. The After Party for the Christmas Carols & Markets is kicking off at Inclusive Cafe (Inc) from 7pm, onsite at Minda. Once the Carols wrap, head over to INC for live music under the stars by the fab duo Lost & Found. Grab a delicious Yiros plate, grab a drink from the bar service and kick on into the night. INC will also be open all day for food and bar service. What a way to welcome the festive season!
