A brilliant day for the second Saturday pop-up in Barnard Park on June 17. Big thanks to all who made in happen. Perfect music for a summer afternoon from Oxjam and other talented local performers. Young Actors Theatre charmed with joyful dance moves. Mrs H and the Sing-along Band performed under the trees. It was hot, hot, hot! The children loved the show. The event was in partnership with Adventure Playground. Katie Walsh and her Playground crew created water fun to beat the heat. Tracy and Ken kept the kids bouncing on their castles. Mr Bubbles made mountains of bubbles that floated through the park. Children threw pots with Pauline from Happy Pots. The art bike was there too. Kids created spin paintings hung to dry on a line between the trees. Visitors filtered in to see the three garden areas in the park tended by volunteers, highlighted in the Open Garden Squares Weekend. Five hundred people enjoyed the day chilling under the trees. It’s the way the park should be.
