As a parent, aren't we always looking for fun ways to keep our ids entertained! Well look no further than this years Fun4Kids Festival. Last week, on a gorgeous sunny autumn day, we went to a special preview event as well as announcement for the headline act for the Fun4Kids Festival at the Polly Woodside in Melbourne, where all the kids got dressed up as pirates (try keeping track of where you kids are when they are all dressed the same!!).

And in case you didn't know, Polly Woodside is a three masted cargo tall ship built n Belfast in 1885, which was used to carry coal and wheat between England and South America. And after travelling 1.5 million miles and circumnavigating the world 17 times, The Polly Woodside is now permanently docked on South Wharf, smack in the centre of Melbourne. I have passed the ship many times and always wanted to go explore, so bonus for me!

Anyway, back to the Fun4Kids Festival. At the launch event the kid were dressed up as pirates, which was naturally very appropriate considering the location, and on board the ship, they got a real taste of what life at sea was like, with some fun activities.

And afterwards, there was a special meet and greet with the headline act for the Fun4Kids Festival, who turned out to me none less than TV Host Jimmy Giggle, from the popular kids show, Giggle & Hoot. Along with Jimmy Giggle, there will also be other performers, including rolls, Lah lah's Big Live Band, The Snor's Travelling Circus and many more.
