CBD abuzz with family fun

Daniel (9) and Chloe (7) Woodrow at the children's fun day on Esk St, Invercargill, on Saturday.

INVERCARGILL children made the most of the sunshine on Saturday to take part in a range of activities.

Invercargill Central Ltd, the company behind the development of the city’s CBD, promoted a children’s fun day in Esk St with the aim of bringing the community together as well as helping retailers in the area.

Face painting and games were among the entertainment.

Siblings Chloe and Daniel Woodrow were thrilled with their “dog balloons”, while Oliver Hartigan had a blast making bubbles.

His mother Hayley Hartigan was pleased to see her son having a good time.

“It is great to get the kids out and it is something for the whole family to be part of.”
