Immigration Museum Kids Fest: All Aboard! 21-22 Jan 2012

The temperature is rising and the tennis is growing ever more exciting. International visitors are pouring into the city looking unmistakably like fans - I think its the visors!

But in the Immigration Museum, we were kept cool by the historic thick walls. Just as well, as children raced through the doors to enjoy All Aboard : a special children’s festival for children aged 3-12 and their families.

Packed with exciting performances, inspiring art installations, fun activities and adventure trails celebrating journeys and arrivals, the punters were treated to hours of fun.

The staff created a beautiful storytelling space for me with a plush red chair. I had the fun of telling some of my favourite stories from around the world: Spain, Hawaii, Turkey and China ... just to name a few.

And how about my gold Thai silk fisherman's pants? I felt very exotic!

Next week I will be at The Home Cooked Comics Festival

Date: Saturday 28 January
Time: 3-7pm
Location: Batman Park, corner St Georges and Arthurton Roads, Northcote.

The Home Cooked Comics Festival is a free celebration for those who love comic books and graphic novels. There will be live music by Animaux and Squid Squad, fight choreography and comic making workshops, Kamishibai (Japanese ‘paper drama’) and the Allen & Unwin Comics Quiz Show.
