Streets Children's Day

25 February 2013

Streets Children's Day

Each year, the first Sunday in March is recognised internationally as Children’s Day, and Christchurch is marking the occasion with the return of the beloved Streets Children’s Day in its new home in South Hagley Park from 11am–3pm on Sunday 3 March.

Run by the Christchurch City Council, Streets Children’s Day is dedicated to celebrating children, reminding adults to do something special for the small people in their lives, and providing the perfect opportunity for families to take part in events alongside one another.

Sport and Recreation Unit Manager John Filsell says that all activities are free. “This includes bouncy entertainment, a climbing tower, plenty of have-a-go sports and obstacle courses, pony rides, face-painting, soap-carving, story-time and more.

“Live entertainment for preschool- and primary-aged children will be highlighted on our performance stage, and the ever-popular Teddy Bear’s Picnic on the MORE FM lawn will be another centrepiece attraction,” Mr Filsell says. “This day is all about reminding adults to do something special for the small people in their lives, and Streets Children’s Day is the perfect opportunity to do just that.”

Plenty of Streets ice-creams will be on sale on the day. The event is part of the Garden City SummerTimes festival, is Smokefree and dog-free and will be cancelled in the event of heavy rain.
