A ‘Kids Karnival’ was the perfect way to start the school holidays on Saturday.
Families enjoyed face painting, a food and drink stall, games, a hairspray booth and Jasper and Chester the clowns at the Deniliquin RSL Club-run event.
Children packed the club’s Little Diggers kids lounge, which boasts chalk boards, Xboxes, televisions, DVD players, an indoor play structure and ball pit.
Deniliquin RSL Club entertainment and promotions coordinator Georgina Connell said the club hopes to hold a Kids Karnival every school holidays.
‘‘It went really well and thankfully with the nice weather we were able to open it up to the beer garden,’’ she said.
‘‘It’s the second time we’ve held the Karnival.
‘‘It gives kids something to do during the school holidays, and something to look forward to.
‘‘We had kids from two to 12 years old with their parents and it was only $5 entry.
‘‘The fairy floss was also very popular and so were the clowns.’’.
