More than 300 children attended Mooroopna’s Ferrari Park for a day of circus activities yesterday.

Hula-hoops, plate-spinning, stilt-walking and streamer-twirling were among the wide range of activities offered to children as part of Greater Shepparton Council’s Activities in the Park program.

Variety entertainer Chris Morant led the workshop, which concluded in a performance of the children’s newly acquired skills.

Lillian Boyd, 6, said her favourite activity was plate-spinning.

She said the workshop was helping her to reach her goal of becoming a magician.

‘‘When I’m older I want to become a magician, so I can make bunnies come out of my hat,’’ Lillian said.
