We covered this Carnival in last years Autumn issue for it’s premier event. It’s almost that time of year again… when the hills come together for the annual Belgrave Easter Carnival! So you can support the Good Friday appeal without having to head out of the hills.
This wonderful family event is held on Good Friday, April 3rd 2015, from 10-3pm at St Thomas More Primary School, Belgrave. It brings local businesses together in support of a fun day out for local and visiting families. At the same time, it also raises much-needed funds for children’s medical care at the Royal Children’s Hospital, Melbourne.
Carnival Head Coordinator, Bek Milikins of local children’s store Hugs for Kids says, “If ever there was a time to ride a donkey in support of our children’s hospital, it’s at Easter!”
“Join us this year for a fantastic family carnival – with something for little kids, big kids, parents and grandparents. Best of all, it’s happening right here in your local hills community,” Bek adds.
This year, the Carnival will feature:
- Exciting rides, including a jumping castle for littlies
- An animal farm and reptile petting zoo
- Face painting
- Delicious local food
There will also be a great range of prizes on offer in the Spinning wheel and Raffle… And of course, the inaugural Easter Egg Hunt!
At least 70% of all ticket sales will be donated to the Royal Children’s Hospital’s Good Friday Appeal. This is made possible by the incredible generosity of local businesses. Many of them are covering the costs of the day themselves, volunteering their time, and paying for the rides and food as their donation.
