Pre-schoolers will show off their creativity at Race Day competition
Under-fives will have the chance to let their creative juices flow at the SunSmart hat-making competition for pre-schoolers at the Trentham Interislander Summer Festival Family Day Races on Wellington Anniversary Day, Monday 23 January.
The fun kicks off at midday, and the littlies will have plenty of time to make and decorate their hat creations before modelling them in a parade at around 1.40pm, when prizes will be awarded.
Judging the SunSmart hat-making competition will be Miss Hutt Valley 2012 Rachel Millns, Trentham Fashion Ambassador Samantha Hannah, and SunSmart’s Laurianne Reinsborough.
It will be a great day for the whole family, with a carnival atmosphere, free entry for those aged under 18, and loads of free activities and entertainment especially for kids.
Laurianne Reinsborough says SunSmart is delighted to be part of the event.
