Whitewater’s Back-to-School Family Fun Festival is running from Wednesday 20th until Sunday 31st of August at Whitewater Shopping Centre, Newbridge.
The Family Fun Festival schedule includes stilt walkers, story telling, bubble displays, magic shows and face painting for children as well as up-beat string quartets and a live Minillan band for all the family to enjoy.
Whitewater’s Summer Kid’s Club will also draw to a close with the last two weeks featuring special guest Merlin The Magician and his magic show on the 21st of August, followed by the season finale, a week later on the 28th of August with a Teddy Bears picnic rounding off the most successful Kids’ Club series to date.
I’m absolutely gutted that I can’t make this years highlight, a visit from much-loved cartoon hero Fire Man Sam, who will visit the Newbridge centre on Sunday 31st of August from 1-4 pm. James is obsessed with fireman Sam and we are constantly putting out fires in Pontypandy.
These shows are to run hourly from 1pm and will feature a free Pontypandy welcome mini-show, music from the hit show as well as opportunities for children to meet and greet Fireman Sam.
There will also be face painting taking place on the day. Face painting is free, however, donations are encouraged to the Newbridge branch of Downs Syndrome Ireland, collecting in the centre on the day.
