Every year as the weather gets colder, our conversations always turn to snow and when can we go and play in it. A holiday or day trip to the snow can be too expensive for some families, and even though Tim is an avid snow lover, we have found ourselves waiting for snow on nearby hills so we can go and play for free!
This year, instead of hoping for snow to fall on the weekend (we can’t just drop everything now that Alegria is in school) we are very excited that there is guaranteed to be snow in Cranbourne, Victoria at The Big Freeze Festival during this years winter school holidays!
The Big Freeze Festival will be held from 2-10 July 2016 at the Cranbourne Racecourse in Melbourne, and we can’t wait to play in the snow village, snow pit and snowball toss, slide down the winter inflatable slide, visit the snow village and forest, participate in the workshops, craft, construction play and everything else that is on offer during this amazing family event.
Tickets cost $28 for children aged 2-12 years* or $16.50 for adults, children aged 13+ and toddlers aged 1-2 years who will be entering the snow play zone.
Guess what? *Every children’s (2-12 years) ticket includes a four park pass to Phillip Island Nature Parks (Penguin Parade, Antarctic Journey, Koala Conservation Centre and Churchill Island Heritage Farm) valid until 25 December 2016.
We have one family pass (consisting of 2 adult tickets and 2 child super pass tickets) for Saturday 2 July 2016 to giveaway (your snow pit session time to be allocated based on availability).
