One of my favourite things about Dunedin is that there is all kinds of free family friendly events happening. But the best part is that due to the size of Dunedin, the events are not overly crowded. This particular event, I can't give you much background on. We were on our way home from our visit to Auckland and I saw a sign on the Botanical Gardens that said "Lark in the Park". I googled it and couldn't find much out, but decided since it's our local playground to mosey on down and check it out.
I am really glad I did this. It was an event sponsored by the Lions Club, this year they were raising money for heart disease (I think). The entertainment was made up of everything from high school orchestra, some kids Irish dancing, a few singers and the cool thing was about an hour of interactive entertainment for the kids. This included all the kids getting an instrument and playing it, getting a ribbon and twirling it and getting a fox mask and dancing around to 'What does the fox say", a parachute. It was so awesome.
There was also this g-force ride, that looked like what astronauts ride in. The age limit was 4 and luckly Bodie was four... He loved it! The train that normally runs through the Botanical Gardens was running and they also got in a vintage fire truck that kids rode.
The sun came out and this was a real fun day.
