A weekend of wondrous magic is coming to Diggers Rest, with free family-friendly activities for all.
The Diggers Rest Magical Weekend event will take place on June 25 and 26 with a plethora of events for the community to enjoy.
Activities on the weekend include a free children’s magic workshop, a pop-up magic show with interactive music act, giant games, free face painting and a spectacular dinner show.
The Magical Morning Kids Workshop teaches participants how to do their own magic tricks in a hands-on, interactive class where each child is given a bag of tricks to learn and take home.
The magical afternoon pop-up show is held in Cradle Road Park, with special guests Mr Tails and Drongo and the Crow to make magic.
There is also face painting and treats from Miss Molly’s Coffee and Cupcakes.
Finally, magician, comedian and entertainer Ben Murphy will entertain at Houdini’s Café e Cucina, where tickets include a three-course meal and the show.
The event is organized by the City of Melton in partnership with Melton City Much More.
Residents can sign up for the events through the City of Melton’s website.
