BALLOON MODELLING, CIRCUS WORKSHOPS AND ‘ELEPHANT RIDES’ TAKE PLACE AT THIS FUN SERIES OF EVENTS FOR KIDS IN ST AUSTELL EVERY MONDAY BETWEEN 1 AUGUST AND 15 AUGUST 2022
Okay, so they’re not real elephants. The elephant rides at ‘All the Fun at the Fair’ are actually little carts made for kids but they’re no less fun for the rugrats. These fun fair-inspired events take place on Monday 1, 8 and 15 August between 11am and 3.30pm each day at the White River Place shopping, dining and leisure destination in St Austell. They are all being organised by the venue and the St Austell Business Improvement District team.
Each Monday features free balloon modelling between 11am and 2.30pm, as well as those elephants rides and performances from Studio 4 Dance Studio. Radio St Austell Bay also has a presence here every Monday and there’s a fab balance and aerial circus workshop run by the team at Higher Beings. The venue bills this as ‘not your average circus workshop’ as they bring with them aerial hoops, a tightrope, stilts, unicycles and much more besides. Also expect facepainting, a bouncy castle and other fun sideshows.
If your kids are at a loose end on a Monday morn or early afternoon during the school holidays in August, then this may just be the place for you. Especially if you want to train them up to sell them off to the circus if they misbehave during the later parts of the school holidays. Just kidding, of course! Probably…
