ID-10031710There’s stacks of things on in the next couple of weeks as part of Kids Fest.  And some of them don’t even involve driving into Christchurch.  Here are the local ones I’ve found below:

Saturday 5th July – Super Spy Training at Kaiapoi North School from 1pm to 4pm – Children turn detective to find Cool Stuff (the Kids Fest mascot dog).  Entry is $5 per child.

Saturday 5th July – Pool Party at Kaiapoi Aquatic Centre.  There’ll be games, music, entertainment and prizes from 7pm to 9pm.  Entry $3 per child and $5.50 per adult.

Tuesday 8th July – Pool Party at Dudley Pool, Church Street, Rangiora.  There’ll be games, music, entertainment and prizes from 1pm to 3pm.  Entry $3 per child and $5.50 per adult.

Wednesday 9th July through to Saturday 12th July – There’s a stage show of the Snow Queen running put on by Dale Hartley School of Speech and Drama.  Tickets are $16 each, booking is essential as the theatre is quite small.  You can find all details of show times and booking contact details here.

Thursday 10th July – Kahuna Kid Songs at Rangiora Library.  2pm to 3pm.  Entry is free but the poster says book – so you might want to give the library a call rather than turn up and be disappointed.  Apparently Kahuna Kids’ Songs blends books, music and media to make fresh and fun stories for kids.

Friday 11th July – Roller Disco at the Rangiora Showgrounds from 2pm to 4pm.  This sounds fun and skates and safety gear are provided.  There’ll be music, games and prizes.  $8 per person.  Book through phatsk8@clear.net.nz or call 03 3499924 or 0273870065.

Tuesday 15th July – Pool Party at Dudley Pool, Church Street, Rangiora.  There’ll be games, music, entertainment and prizes from 1pm to 3pm.  Entry $3 per child and $5.50 per adult.

Tuesday 15th July – Josh Grimaldi’s Toy Land at Rangiora High School.  This is “a show full of magical wonder and excitement”.  Toys come to life to amuse and delight all with their crazy illusions and comical acrobatics.  There are two show times: 11am to 12 and 1.30pm to 2.30pm.  Entry on the door is $12 per person.  But if you book in advance on the Kids Fest website then it’s just $10.  Children under 3 are free.

Wednesday 16th July – Bubbles The Clown – I’m one of those people who doesn’t ‘get’ clowns but most kids do.  So if you want to head along to see Bubbles then he’s appearing at Rangiora Baptist Church for a show from 11am to 11.45am.  Then at Kaiapoi Working Men’s Club from 2pm to 2.45pm.  Fee is $2 for kids and caregivers.

Thursday 17th July – Kahuna Kid Songs at Kaiapoi Community Centre.  2pm to 3pm.  Entry is free but the poster says book through the library – so you might want to give Kaiapoi library a call rather than turn up and be disappointed.  Apparently Kahuna Kids’ Songs blends books, music and media to make fresh and fun stories for kids.

Friday 18th July – Rangiora Kids Market – Victoria Park, Rangiora.  Kids get a chance to sell stuff.  $5 per stall.  Email thekeens@hotmail.com to book.
