Big Chief Booga Booga, pictured with Kath Kirk at the 2013 event, returns for the Sun Festival today.
The annual Sun Festival Kids Party is on today, in the Waring Gardens from 9am to 1pm.
For the four hours, a host of free, fun activities will be provided to local and visiting children.
The popular Rotary Train will return for the celebrations and Gardner’s Amusements Cobram will provide a blow up Star Station and The Worm.
Weather permitting, Farmer Darryl’s Farmyard animal nursery will return allowing children to pat a range of farm animals and entertainer Big Chief Booga Booga will keep everyone entertained with his roaming performances.
There will also be rides, a jumping castle and other interactive activities for the youngsters.
A tradition of the Kids’ Party is the balloon launch, where each child gets their name on a balloon that is released during the day.
The first balloon to touch down and be found earns the lucky child a great prize.
The Deniliquin Lions Club will provide food and refreshments on the day for a small cost.
Budgetary restrictions have prevented the Sun Festival Family Fun Day, usually held the day after today’s event, from going ahead this year.
