What animal features outside the Lincoln Library? Not sure?

It’s one of the questions in Eye Spy Selwyn, part of this year’s KidsFest. Eye Spy Selwyn is among a host of new events for KidsFest these winter holidays. Similar to the 100 Days of Summer challenge, it will encourage young people to get out and about, practise jokes, complete challenges and answer questions all over the district.

KidsFest is back for the winter holidays and bookings have opened.

Events will be run at Selwyn Libraries and Selwyn Aquatic Centre and across the district, including a moviemania showing of Ferdinand the Bull and the first ever Discomania in Tai Tapu.

Families are encouraged to get in quick to register their children for their preferred activities, with perennial favourites such as the high ropes challenge always booking out quickly.

Children and families are also encouraged to start preparing early for the popular Kids Market 10am–12pm on 11 July. With the second-hand sale attracting hundreds of applications from young people wanting stalls, people will need to get in quick to register. Family and friends are encouraged to clear their diaries and make sure they can get along to grab some great bargains.

More information, or pick up a KidsFest booklet from a Selwyn Library, the Lincoln Event Centre, Rolleston Community Centre or Selwyn Aquatic Centre.
