They are interactive and they’re educational, but don’t tell the children.
Redfest President Arno Nel said a huge range of activities were available at this year’s Redfest for children of all ages, activities that were engaging, fun, stimulating and free.
Children’s activities run from 10am to 5pm on September 2 and 3 with a free rock wall and jumping castle, animal farm, shows and activities.
“We want this to be a show for everyone so it’s really important to us to give something to the children,” Arno said.
“There’s a lot going on in this area. The children are the ones who will keep Redfest alive.”
Jess Golle’s Spuddy and Scoot show promises to be a major attraction.
The former Sheldon College student has been contracted to Disney and Bluey, travelling the world and performing. Most recently she performed at this year’s Ekka.
Jess presents a musical early-learning show which encourages healthy eating and mindful habits.
She is joined in her sunny Brisbane kitchen by cheeky puppet friends sweet potato Spuddy and strawberry Scoot.
The cooking adventures are filled with singing, laughter, dancing and stirred with a magic spoon.
The Spuddy and Scoot show will be staged in the children’s tent from 4pm on September 2.
Present at the festival will be David Moss with the Shimano Fish tank, attracting a prize value of $8000 to its players.
There will be Street Science workshops on both days from 10am to noon where children can learn about chemistry and DIY interactive science.
Also performing at the children’s tent will be the Juggling Liam show at 12.30pm on both days and the Barrick Dancers from 2pm on September 2.
