Entertaining the whānau? Kids Music in Parks has you covered

Published: 16 January 2019

Get the little ones excited these holidays with not one, not two, but three free Kids Music in Parks events.

This music festival just for kids first hit the park last year and, thanks to the enthusiastic response, it’s returning with another colourful line-up of New Zealand’s most beloved children’s performers.

So, gather the whānau, pack a picnic, and join us for an afternoon filled with activities, games and music.

The first of the tri-series takes place on Saturday 19 January at Coyle Park, Pt Chevalier from 1pm onwards.

The ever-beloved children's entertainer Suzy Cato has curated the artists and will MC the series. She’s been a long-time fan of Music in Parks and is excited at taking to the stage for the event now.

“When our babes were young, we loved our local Families in Parks events,” she says.

“Now they’re older we’ve been making the most of the Music and Movies in Parks events!”

See you and the little ones on Saturday to enjoy songs and symphonies from Itty Bitty Beats and Petite Music Box, Kahuna Kidsongs, Anna van Riel, Mr Roberelli, and Captain Festus McBoyle's Travellin' Variety Show.
