Teddy Bears' Picnic at Eastwood Hill
EXPERIENCE the change of season in one of the region’s most beautiful settings this weekend.
Eastwoodhill kickstarts autumn with its annual Teddy Bears’ Picnic on Sunday from 11am to 3pm. Bring your favourite bear and a picnic and enjoy the surroundings of the National Arboretum.
There will be a scarecrow-building competition, bouncy castle, story-telling, face-painting, bear competitions, walks, a sausage sizzle and more.
The Tasty Leaf Cafe will be operating so adults can have a coffee while the kids enjoy themselves.
Gisborne’s Irish-influenced folk band Barleycorn will perform, along with musicians from The Band School.
Entry fee is $20 for a carload of two adults with children or $5 each for adults without children.
A few showers are forecast but organisers say don’t let that put you off, just bring your raincoat or an umbrella.
