Esperance Children's Festival - Kids Fun Day Out
The "Fun Day Out" kid's festival is a bienniel event, held in March on alternate years to the Esperance Festival of the Wind. It began in 2006, after a 'House of Fun' was created for the 2005 Festival of the Wind. Michelle Crisp, who with several volunteers organised the 'House of Fun', had the vision to hold a bienniel Children's Festival.
The Children's Festival has increased in both size and attendance over the years, with at least 3000 people attending the last event, indicating the need for such an event in the Esperance Community.
The event is an opportunity for local children to experience a large event that is uusually only available in the big cities. The Fun Day is low cost day, where parents and carers can interact with their children, doing activities that stimulate their imagination, and which can be easily reproduced at home without huge commercial expense.
