Come down to the Karralyka Gardens (and bring your Ted)
If you go down to the Karralyka gardens on Saturday 22 February 2014, between 10.30am and 2.30pm, you're sure of a big surprise.

For ev'ry bear that ever there was
Will gather there for certain, because
That's the day the teddy bears have their picnic.

The Karralyka Centre and Maroondah City Council present the Teddy Bear's Picnic in the Park.

As the 1930s Irish lyrics promise:

There's lots of marvellous things to eat
And wonderful games to play.

Make sure you bring your own marvellous things to eat (including something for teddy, of course!) or indulge in some fairy floss, popcorn and fizzy drinks, available for purchase on the day.

Remember to pop in a picnic blanket and all your teddies (or perhaps just your favourite few, so there's plenty of space in the basket for those marvellous tasty treats).

Karralyka Teddy Bears Picnic
Teddy bears of all shapes and sizes welcome

The wonderful games to play will be provided for free. Ev'ry teddy bear who's been good can gaily gad about on the Jumping Castle, Giant Kiddiepillar, Giant Jenga, Giant Chess, Connect Four garden games and cuddle their favourite animal at the Petting Zoo. Of course, the kids are welcome to join in the fun activities with their teddy bears too.

Karralyka Teddy Bears Picnic
Remember to BYO picnic

Remember that "you'd better go in disguise", but if you don't there will be professional face painters to help you out, as well as a teddy bear biscuit activity table and the launch of the inaugural KarraKids Children's Workshop program.

Psst.. did I forgot to mention? Keep an eye out for a certain special pig who is coming to visit.

This is a free community event for all children and their families.
