Kids' mini festival returns to 2018's Auckland City Limits

Auckland Kiddie Limits will again be part of the fun at Auckland City Limits Music Festival happening this March at Auckland's Western Spring Stadium.

While children 10 years and under get in free and are welcome in all the corners of ACL which boasts an incredible lineup in its second year, Kiddie Limits provides a special fun-filled zone for them where they can enjoy music, activities and exclusive food offerings with their parents.

Activities in Auckland Kiddie Limits include roving pirate games with Captain Festus McBoyle and the crew, a Hotshots photo booth, karaoke, balloon twisting, face painting and temporary tattoos by Ink.A.Little. The Jewellers of Greater Sandringham will be running a crystal necklace workshop and seven year-old Alfie and his mum will be piloting a paper plane workshop complete with runway.

Plus The Babies and Parentspace is back. There will be a massage therapist who will provide free mini relaxation sessions for mums and dads; a breastfeeding peer support person, changing tables and there will also be a midwife available just in case.

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.

Auckland Kiddie Limits is situated in the village green space in MOTAT, accessed only from within the music festival's Western Springs site. It 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 includes:
- Claudia Robin Gunn
- Chanelle & Friends
- Chris Sam Lam's Musical Mayhem
- Captain Festus
- McBoyle's Travelin' Variety Show
- Le Cirque De JP - Circus & Magic Show
- Itty Bitty Beats

What a fun way to celebrate with the whole family this spring!
