The Caloundra Fire & Rescue Services will be making an appearance from 10.30am on the 10th of December at the Arty Pants Kid’s Festival with one of their fire trucks. Children’s entertainer Fireman Sam will also be performing on the day.
Acting Area Commander Rob Frey is thrilled to be a part of this day and says “The Queensland Fire and Rescue Service strongly support educating children on the importance of fire safety from a young age. When we recognise that children are prepared to learn from us, we love to get involved with community events such as the Arty Pants Kid’s Festival.”
He said that being presented with an opportunity to work in conjunction with Fireman Sam really helps reiterates the importance of fire safety.
“Its basic things like learning to get low in smoke, getting out the door and the importance of knowing the emergency number 000.”
The inaugural Arty Pants Kid’s Festival is on Saturday 10th December 2011, just in time for the school holidays. Headlining acts include Angelina Ballerina and Fireman Sam who will perform in the Playhouse Theatre four times throughout the day. There will be a variety of interactive workshops, activities and performances for children and their parents to engage in. Some examples include Zumba for kids, face painting, hip hop dance demos, back stage tours and story telling sessions. Here is an opportunity to learn about & celebrate the arts in its many forms.
The Arty Pants Art Competition, sponsored by SunnyCoastKids.com.au, will also run in the lead up to this festival with entries displayed in the foyer and winners announced on the day. If you wish to enter the art competition, art work needs to be of A4 size and involve the theme of the festival “My Family”.
The festival is a not-for-profit event produced by The Events Centre, Caloundra and assisted by our enthusiastic sponsors and volunteers.
