Children of all ages can step into the world of imagination when the ‘ImagiNation’ Children’s Festival returns to the City of Logan on Saturday, April 15.

The free festival is at the Kingston Butter Factory Cultural Precinct from 9am to 3pm. It will feature six different ‘activity worlds’ to explore for children aged up to 12.

Characters from the popular television program CoComelon headline the entertainment world.

Children can get up close with their favourite CoComelon characters at a meet and greet or take part in the CoComelon-themed activity zone featuring a mini golf course and bowling.

The action-packed program also includes an interactive Wild Rangers’ reptile show, a drum beats workshop, tomato planting, an eSports zone, a climbing wall and slime making.

City Lifestyle Chair Cr Laurie Koranski said the festival is ideal for families in Logan.

“It’s always a wonderful day-out with plenty of free activities on offer for children of all ages,” Cr Koranski said.

Division 2 Cr Teresa Lane said will be the first time ImagiNation has been held at the Kingston Butter Factory Cultural Precinct.
