The popular holiday programme is returning to Selwyn these July school holidays and Council’s Sport, Recreation and Wellbeing manager Dave Tippett encourages people to book their children in early for their preferred events as they often book out quickly.

“We’ve got a wide mix of events this year with new activities and favourites from last year. Elgregoe the Magician will be bringing his new show Amaze, and there’s a Navigational Rampage mixing rogaine and orienteering.

“We’ve also got Hip Hop classes and Sport Suzie’s Super Silly Circus Show coming back, along with popular events such as the High Ropes Challenge, Discomanias and Selwyn Kids’ Market.”

The Selwyn Aquatic Centre will be breaking out its big inflatables, paddle boats and inflatable toys and there will also be activities at the Selwyn Libraries such as Map Making Workshops, Makerstations, House of Bricks, Intaglio Printing and other craft activities.

KidsFest has been delighting children in Selwyn, Christchurch and Waimakariri for over 25 years and families can attend events run in any of the three areas.

Some KidsFest events are free and others are available at low cost. Booking is required for some events.

For information on events and bookings, or pick up a KidsFest booklet from a Selwyn Library, the Lincoln Event Centre, Rolleston Community Centre or Selwyn Aquatic Centre.
