Kids find fun at Tweed City

SHREK fanatics rushed into Tweed City Shopping Centre for the first day of kite-making workshops yesterday.

More than 100 children had made kites in the first two hours of the workshop, run by Showtime Entertainment.

Parents can drop children off while they go to do their shopping or sit with their kids as they make the colourful kites every day this week between 10am and 1pm.

The kites are supplied ready to fly, so there’s no tricky DIY for parents.

Showtime staff member Emily Domrow said the kites had been a hit and were easy to put together.

“They come in packets and I put them together and the kids then colour them in and they are ready to go,” she said.

The holiday entertainment will spill into next week when daily shows will feature Shrek and Princess Fiona live on stage between 11am and 1pm, from Monday, October 4 until Saturday, October 9.

The kite-making workshops will be held in the Fashion Walk outside clothing store Wombat, and live shows next week will be held on-stage outside Coles.

It’s all part of making school holidays fun for everyone.
