DENMARK Primary School will hold its annual Mid-Winter Fete this Sunday, beginning at 10am.
More than 40 stalls will head up a day of fun, games, entertainment and celebrity appearances at this popular event, which this year is expected to draw a record crowd.
Funds raised will go towards replacing four playgrounds at the school which are close to the end of their lives, plus interactive whiteboards for classrooms, to deliver more effective learning.
Games will include a spinning prize wheel, spooky house, lucky ducks and find-the-feather-in-the-snow, while pony rides and activities from Denmark Thrills, karate demonstrations, and a cooking competition judged by celebrity chef Anna Gare will entertain visitors.
There will also be an appearance by celebrity basketballer Paul Rogers.
Young visitors can enjoy face-painting, bouncy castles and craft activities such as slime-making and instant snowballs.
Refreshments will include roasted marshmallows, home-made cakes, fresh doughnuts, a sausage sizzle and drinks.
TAFE and Senior High school students will provide musical entertainment, and police and ambulance members will give demonstrations and hand out information.
School principal Damian Luscombe thanked local people, businesses and organisations who have made donations and helped to make the day happen. ‘I encourage everyone to come and enjoy the day,’ Mr Luscombe said.
