A WET first day of the school holidays resulted in a packed ILT Stadium Southland, with youngsters enjoying its Tiny Town.
Events and programme manager Alex Morrison-Bailey said as the Kidzone festival was cancelled due to Covid-19, they decided to bring the attraction to the Invercargill stadium for three days instead, from Monday to Wednesday.
“We had people waiting outside before the doors opened. We are happy people are enjoying it and we are expecting thousands of kids.”
Levi Moffatt, who loves cars, had fun playing mechanic.
“I usually help my dad when he is fixing our car. But this is quite fun as well.”
