Auckland Kiddie Limits returns as part of the fun at Auckland City Limits Music Festival, catering for the youngest demographic and their parents.
Children 10 years old and under free entry to ACL, and while they are welcome in all corners of the festival, Kiddie Limits is a fun-filled zone where parents and kids can hang through the day to enjoy music, activities and exclusive food offerings.
The legendary Finn, erstwhile host of the 95bFM kids show, has once again curated the musical and entertainment lineup.
Performers include Christchurch duo Itty Bitty Beats, winners of the 2016 Best Children’s Song and Best Children’s Album, madcap musical comedy pantomime troupe Captain Festus McBoyle's Travelin' Variety Show, singer songwriter Chanelle & Friends, magical circus performer Le Cirque De JP, award winning kids folk musician Claudia Robin Gunn and an exciting interactive show from Chris Sam Lam's Musical Mayhem.
Activities in Kiddie Limits include pirate games, a photo booth, karaoke, face painting, temporary tattoos, and workshops in paper plane making, magic, balloon twisting, and jewellery.
Kiddie Limits opens with the main gates at 11am and will run until 5pm – at which time rock’n’roll mums and dads can choose to use their pass-outs to get the kids home to the grandparents before coming back for the festival headliners, who play through to 11pm.
Auckland Kiddie Limits is not a drop-off area. Kids and caregivers are encouraged to enjoy the space together.
