Check out why we think your kids are going to be thrilled at Tara Festival 2017!!!
1) Show Inspired by Disney Movie 'Moana'
Yep, that movie they loved in the cinemas - these talented dancers are going to bring the Polynesian culture of Moana to life on stage at Tara Festival! This will be part of a full 30 minute cultural stage show, also featuring exciting Haka Dancing!
2) The Globe of Death
Two blokes riding bikes at speed with great precision inside this globe of steel! We challenge your kids not to scream with excitement!
3) The Camel Races
That moment when the camels come hurtling down the track will be a memory your kids will take with them for years. Even better will be their memory if one of the stubborn camels sits down mid-race or runs in the opposite direction in stubbornness! There'll be six camel races Saturday and another six Sunday.
4) The Yabbie Races
After each Camel Race is run on the Saturday and Sunday, there'll be Yabbie Races on the trackside.
5) Sheep Shearing + Sheep Dogs
Watching a shearer skilfully take the fleece off a sheep entrances children every time! There'll be sheep shearing, wool handling skills to watch, plus also sheep dog trials on display during the festival.
6) This!!! Native American Hoop Dance
Check out this video of Bernard Mana, who'll perform this Indian American Hoop Dance on Friday night and during the day Saturday. He's a talented man with a talent for exciting others, especially the kids, about the cultures of the world, with a special focus on Polynesian culture too!
7) Exciting Cultural Stage Shows
There's so much noise, colour and excitement in the Cultural Stage Shows the kids will be spellbound! Including: a Carribean Steel Band, New Zealand Haka Dancers, Latin Drummers and Dancers and Indigenous Australian Performers.
8) Entertainment everywhere!
All through the Festival there'll be exciting entertainers roving around and surprising the kids! See the pictured 'Bubble Bot' riding around on a segway, plus Mrs Pink, as well as stilt-walkers, and Wally the Clown. The kids will love Wally's amazing abilities - juggling, magic, riding a very tall uni-cycle, and riding the smallest bike you’ve ever seen!
9) Huge Fireworks Friday!
Friday night is always a treat for the kids, with the exciting cultural stage shows followed by a massive fireworks display.
10) Free Kids Rides Saturday
