Police were at Deniliquin's annual Sun Festival Kid's Party in the Park on Friday - but not to arrest anyone. Officers set up an interactive display and had some fun with the children.TYLA HARRINGTON January 16, 2013 4:21am
We’re not sure if four year-old Harrison Moodie had a desire to be a police officer before going to the Sun Festival Kid’s Day on Friday, but he sure looks like he could fit the part.
Harrison was just one of the hundreds of kids who stopped at the Deniliquin NSW Police Force display on the day - in-between all the rides and games on offer.
It’s the first time local police have had an interactive display at the annual event in many years, and it seemed to be a welcome addition to the festivities.
Friday’s heat certainly took a toll on the event, which began earlier than normal to help shield families from the searing sun.
Most tried to keep their activities in the shade as much as possible.
But despite the temperature, which reached 41°C, the kids did not slow down.
Constant lines were visible at the ‘Star Station’ and ‘The Worm’, courtesy of Gardner’s Amusements in Cobram.
Face painting and a roaming performer also ensured plenty of entertainment.
Festival chairman Geoff Riley said he was ‘‘extremely pleased’’ with how the day went.
‘‘The Rotary train was extremely busy.
‘‘It was great for the young kids, and grandparents and parents appreciated the day also.
‘‘Everyone had a ball.’’
