Hutt City Kindergartens, supported by Mitre 10 MEGA Petone, are excited to invite you to join us for an afternoon of fun!

The day starts at 1pm, with music and kids entertainment, and then the two 800 metre Colour Walks will commence at 2 pm and 3 pm.

We see this Family Colour Fun Day as an opportunity to bring our community together for a few hours of fun, with the chance to participate in some really cool, low cost activities that will help raise some funds for Waiwhetu and Waterloo Kindergartens.

We will have a variety of food trucks, but feel free to bring your own picnic down to the park. We are promoting this as a healthy event for our whanau, so please leave any alcohol at home. Make sure to bring your own water bottle!

Our main event will be the fun colour walks around Te Whiti Park with paint stations set up at the 200m, 400m and 600m marks. At each station, people will be encouraged to throw powdered paint at each other. A fun way to brighten up the walk! There will be bags of paint available for purchase at each station.

You will need a ticket to take part in the two colour walks. Additional colour packets can be purchased on the day for $5.

Tickets can also be purchased at either Waiwhetu (04-9209836) or Waterloo Kindergartens (04-9209838).

As well as the colour walks, we will have some other affordable activities available including Bouncy Castles, Bouncy Slides, and battery operated cars. The money raised from these activities will go to the two Kindergartens.

Tips for the day:
- Wear old clothes, mostly white is best so the colours stand out! The powdered paint can be washed out in cold water, but just in case, the older the clothing the better; we would hate for your new t-shirt to be ruined.
- Bring cash to buy additional colour packets, food, and to have a go on the additional activities.
- The colour used is cornstarch based, with natural food dyes. It is non-toxic and safe to use on children and adults.
- Whilst this is a Kindergarten event, Kindy teachers will not be responsible for your children. Please be mindful of Riverside Drive, Whites Line East, the Driveway around the park (will be closed to the public cars but will be open for vendors to use), and the Waiwhetu Stream.

Huge thanks must go to Mitre 10 MEGA Petone and Pelorus Trust for making this event possible!
