The Big Freeze Festival 2016 – Cranbourne
Open for a limited time only – Saturday July 2nd – Sunday July 10th, 2016
It’s been a warm start to winter so far this year but the past few days have brought in what may be the start of the chill. We love that no matter what kind of weather is thrown at us, Melbourne always seems to have an answer to it. With an abundance of festivals, events and exhibitions taking place in Melbourne throughout the year, we are always given the opportunity to learn something new and share the wonderful experiences with family and friends. Last weekend we took our little ones out for a taste of some cold, winter fun at the launch of The Big Freeze Festival.
The snow sisters from Magical Princess Entertainment were amazing! So talented and lovely to chat with!
The Big Freeze Festival is a fun filled event coming this July that aims to:
– provide an affordable snow experience close to home for Melbourne families and,
– help families re-discover how to have fun together over the winter months by promoting physical activity, encouraging creativity and remembering the joy of imagination play.
We had a little preview of the upcoming festival with some live performances and photo opps with the snow princesses and some snow play. The festival opens in July and will feature the following zones and more:
– Snow play (be sure to get in and book your session early!)
– Snow globe photobooth
– Regular snowfalls through the Snow Forest
– Stage performances and Meet n Greets
– Superhero training
– Rainy day arts n crafts
– Construction play
– Workshops: Learn new skills in the workshops series. Select from activities such as hip hop dancing, learn a magic trick, kids’ yoga & music classes. Check out the festival timetable to plan your visit.
– Tiny Tots Zone

Hot apple cider from Those Girls was sweet and soothing after some time out on the ice! Sweetcheeks Cookies and Cakes & The Marshmallow Club had a nice spread of colourful treats for us.

He wanted me to go faster so we could “drift”! Thank goodness I could hold onto him and his seal for balance…I hadn’t been out skating in so long!
He didn’t want to stop!…looks like we’ll have to come back for another visit to Docklands for some more laps of the skating rink.
Thank you to You’re Melbourne for the awesome pics!
