The Big Freeze Festival is almost here! 

*****Giveaway now closed*****Win-Tickets-to-TBF-1

You would’ve read about our fun day out at the launch of The Big Freeze Festival back in April posted here. The wait is finally over as the festival opens this July 2nd and will be run through until July 10th at the Cranbourne Racecourse.

The purpose of the festival is to empower kids to be active, creative and use their imaginations within a spectacular winter wonderland setting. Bringing the magic of beautiful white snowfall to you, The Big Freeze Festival will have nine magical and interactive winter play zones and activities to keep everyone active including snowboarding and construction play, stage performances and workshops to name a few.

What we love is the fact that organisers of The Big Freeze Festival are giving families a fantastic opportunity to keep healthy and active during the chilly days and bringing both the snow and interactive workshops together in one family-friendly place. Some of the workshops include:

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.

334A2277The 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.
