If you go down to the park...

MEDIA RELEASE


9 February 2004


If you go down to the park...

This year’s Meadow Fresh Teddy Bears’ Picnic, to be held on Sunday 22 February 2004, promises, as always, to be a free and fun day out for the whole family.

The Auckland Domain will play host to around 40,000 people and bears.

Kids can expect all their old favourites. Ronald McDonald will be on the Pumpkin Patch Stage, and magician Alan Watson on the Digitalmax Stage. There will be an opportunity for a meet and greet with television personality Suzy Cato. Fairy Clare’s Fairy Grotto and Auckland City Libraries Storyland, both crowd pleasers last year, will also be open. The Teddy Bears’ Hospital, hosted by Variety at Work, will provide free health checks. Break-dancing and rhythmic gymnastic displays, as well as cultural performances will be on offer at the Auckland City Display Area. For a break, or a place in the shade, visit the Oasis, which allows ready access to refreshments.

Patrons are reminded that there is no parking allowed on the sports fields, or on any grass area. To enjoy a hassle-free journey, picnic-goers might want to consider the Teddy Express Bus, which will run free trips to and from the event all day. The bus stop will be located on Broadway, Newmarket, opposite Route 66. Disabled parking will be available on Domain Drive, off Park Road, for those with stickers. For other public transport information call Rideline, phone (09) 366 6400 or visit www.rideline.co.nz.

The event’s major sponsor is Meadow Fresh, stage sponsors are Pumpkin Patch and Digitalmax. Additional sponsors are McDonalds, More FM, and Tip Top icecreams.
