Variety Kid's Christmas Party (Adelaide), 2017

More than 2,800 children, carers and volunteers attended today’s Variety Kid’s Christmas Party run by the Ladies of Variety (L.O.V.) at the Adelaide Showground.

Children were entertained by the Flaming Sambucas and Character Works, as well as face painters, temporary tattoo artists, a fire engine, a large post box for letters to Santa, Tinsel and the Reindeers plus a photo booth for the children to capture their special day.

It was great to see so many smiling children having an absolute ball! Especially when our special guest Santa made an appearance. It is safe to say the kids will sleep well tonight!

Special thank you to the Ladies of Variety for their incredible effort, along with the volunteers. The function simply would not exist without the generous support of: Adelaide Showground for hosting, and the sponsors: O’Brien Catering Group, Advance Robes, Cochrane’s, Vili’s and Central Audio Visual.
