Go Wild at Friars Square
Thursday 24 August
Friars will Go Wild with three performances of Creature Encounter’s new children’s show Honopopo! There will be bounceabouts from ROO’d!, a pair of giant kangaroos on bouncing stilts. Plus a craft workshop to make wild animals to take home. The event starts at 11am until 3pm.
Creature Encounter’s two intrepid explorers will take youngsters back to early civilization, before maps were drawn, to visit the lost island of Honopopo and meet its inhabitants along the way, including a gorgeous orangutan and a baby dinosaur. This lovely show draws on children’s favourites such as The Jungle Book and Tarzan.
