Two days of fun for parents and kids
Caribbean Gardens has two fantastic free events for kids these school holidays and it's a place where parents reap the benefits too.

On Sunday 29 September 2019 it's Animal Day.

On Wednesday 2 October 2019 its Circus Day.

Between 9 - 12pm, activities on both days are free. After 12 noon, fees apply. If your kids wake at dawn, like mine did in their childhood years, it will be easy to get to these free activities by opening time. Reap the benefits of 3 hours of free stuff!

On Animal Day, there will be 3 free hours of pony rides from Giddy Up Pony Rides and a free petting zoo from Myuna Farm Ark. These events will be located at the Entertainment Gazebo right next to the cafe where you can get your morning coffee.

On Circus Day, there will be 3 free hours of circus workshops with Justin Case from Show Off Entertainment. He has just finished an international tour with The Greatest Magic Show. Kim Annette Dance Studios with have an acro workshop and dance performance and yes, you guessed it, this takes place next to the Entertainment Gazebo too, coffee.

After 12 noon, the free activities continue on both days with free use of the great playground area.

Not for free
Rides are $7 each and there's also mini-golf, the train, jungle cruise and the chairlift.

The cafe and street food stalls will have you sorted for food but if you want to BYO, book a free gazebo and have a BBQ or picnic.

That's two days out of 14 sorted.
