The kids won't be bored at this year's Bathurst Winter Festival Kids' Day!

Start the morning by taking to the ice during the kids' skating session at 10.00am, then stick around for the free Upcycled Craft Workshop in the McDonald's Bathurst Ice Rink marquee. When you get hungry, pop over to the All Saints Cathedral for lunch from their BBQ on the Cathedral Lawn or a treat from their Bell Tower Munchies, or simply stay in the Winter Playground and enjoy a pie or a coffee from one of the pop up food stalls.

Show off your vocal skills by singing a Disney tune on the carousel karaoke 10.00pm - 2.00pm, and leave your mark in front of the courthouse with Pavement Chalk Art.

If you need to escape the cold, join in the Childrens' Free Play at Cheekii Kidz, or have a laugh with Sean Murphy at the Bathurst Library (bookings recommended).

Maybe you feel like exploring beyond the Winter Playground - why not visit the Mayfield Garden Winter Festival, ride a pony at Barcoos or build a snowman at the Bathurst Snow Park?

The fun doesn't stop after dark! See if you can beat the high score on Rain Run in Court House Lane, then glow in the fernery after being painted with special UV face paint. Bust a move at the silent disco in front of the Courthouse. To top off your evening, visit Country Coffee to try one of their Bathurst Winter Festival take-away boxes, or stop by Rydges on your way home for dessert.
