THE ImagiNation Children’s Festival is back these September school holidays after last year’s successful launch.
This year there are more than 150 free and low-cost children’s activities across Logan.
Parents looking for ideas to keep children entertained will have a range of activities to choose from, including go-karting (pictured), water skiing, chocolate factory tours and nature trails, as well as robotics, photography, arts and cooking workshops.
City Image chairman – Logan City councillor Laurie Smith – said the festival was for children aged 0 to 12.
“There will be no reason for families to say they don’t have anything to do over the school holidays,” Cr Smith said.
Families can kick off their Imagi Nation these holidays at the festival’s official launch on Monday, September 18 from 10am to 2pm at the historic Mayes Cottage in Kingston. Registration for free tickets to the launch is essential, and attendees are encouraged to bring a picnic rug to the event.
The Logan Dirty Dinosaurs Mud Play will be one of the highlights.
Other events expected to draw a lot of interest from both kids and adults include bubble soccer and the plover workshop, in which artist and author Tracy L. Church will teach primary aged children about local plover birdlife and show them how to make their own plover masks in What the Plovers Have to Say!
Children who help name the festival monster can win one of five ImagiNation sports bag packs
