Press Release
Friday 30 November 2007

E Tu! Free Concert and Information Forums

Frank Kitts Park, Sat 1 Dec (Sun if wet), noon-7pm

Twenty metre inflatable “Caterpillar” kids fun ride makes Wgtn debut!

The E Tu! Concert has had a strong response from stall holders, with a large range of craft and information stalls applying to participate. And the kids will have the best time – along with two aircastles, mini-jeeps and a merry-go-round, the little ones get to try Wellington’s latest kids’ attraction, the 20 metre “Caterpillar”. A giant inflatable, the kids go in one end, encounter and navigate all sorts of adventures internally, to come out the far end usually with big grins on their faces!

E Tu! Event manager Martin Wilson says, “Families are most especially welcome to our Wellington event. Other cities are having gatherings to vocally show their disapproval of the Terrorism Suppression Act; in Wellington we are having a discussion forum, and a truly top line-up of bands and musicians who are showcasing their art in public for free as a means of expressing their disapproval of this Act.”

“It will be a fun day in the sun; relaxed, informative, and enjoyable for parents and kids alike.”
