If you go down to Lions Park on Saturday 19 October, you are sure of a big surprise! The popular Teddy Bear’s Picnic is returning this year and on a Saturday.
It truly is a day for the whole family to enjoy. This year’s event will include over 28 activities and rides for the children, including a crash course, bandage a bear, face painting and unicorn land, to name a few. “We are overwhelmed by the success of previous picnics and cannot wait to bring our biggest and best to the community so far,” says Forbes Shire Council Mayor, Phyllis Miller OAM.
Taste of Greece, Sweet Three Vintage Van and BBQ by Forbes Lions Club will all be on site. Coffee by Larz and an ice cream van will also be available to supply treats for big and little kids alike.
Children are asked to bring along their favourite teddy to participate in the Teddy Bear Parade. Each child will receive a token for participating. Make sure you have your name tag on your bear in case he or she accidently gets lost.
The musical performances on the day will feature Mainly Music, Maddi Collits and Georgia Sideris who will get the children ready to have some fun. Both Forbes North Dance Troupe and Kristen’s Dance Studio will also perform.
“Food and refreshments will be available on the day or bring a picnic,” says Mayor Miller. “It is a lovely event the whole family can enjoy for little to no cost.”
Teddy Bears Picnic forms Council’s celebrations of Children’s Week and the picnic starts at 10am and concludes at 2pm.
