Wodonga's Children's Fair returns bigger and better

The popular and free annual Wodonga Children's Fair is back this Sunday, October 28.

Jam-packed with entertainment, children can look forward to Kidding around with Bethany Fisher, Hannah Cryle and the Big Wheel Show, Wild Action as well as familiar favourites such as the Hay Ho Animal Nursery.

“This year’s Children’s Fair will have everything from miniature goats to cricket and food to fashion,” Wodonga Council events co-ordinator Duryarne Streat said.

“The Wodonga Children’s Fair is a favourite on the local calendar, and this year’s line-up is again sure to please parents and children alike.”

There will be three stages full of performances demonstrating different cultures such as Indigenous art, Irish dancing, Aussie barbecues, Indian dancing, African drumming, plus local school and community groups.

There will also be a Welcome to Country and Smoking ceremony.

Museum Victoria will bring various live insects as well as a taxidermy display of Australian animals.

At the Hay Ho animal nursery, children will get an exciting hands-on experience with loads of animals including ducks, sheep, pigs, rabbits, guinea pigs, donkeys, alpacas, geese, miniature goats, and ponies.

There’ll be a sports bonanza on the large recreation oval with local sporting clubs representing sailing, BMX, cricket, ultimate frisbee, basketball, hockey, little athletics, plus emergency services displays.

The fair is on from 10am to 3pm at the Wodonga Racecourse and Showground precinct, Hamilton Smith Dve, Wodonga.
