The MY Mount Eliza Run & Fun Festival 2018 is an exciting major event secured for our community and the first of its kind, combining a run through the Moorooduc Quarry and festival experience at the Mount Eliza Regional Park. As with March 2017, the 2018 Festival promises to be a quality family fun day out on the Mornington Peninsula for all ages. Grab a friend or family member and start fresh on the trail run course, rub shoulders with AFL celebrities and engage with supportive local businesses who back our festival values and vision. Fuel up on healthy food and superior coffee, join the crowd to cheer on the run / walk competitors or join in the various kids activities on offer with prizes and giveaways galore!
Come along to the Mount Eliza Regional Park on 25 March 2018 and be a part of this Festival!!
There are an abundance of kids activities planned for the Festival. Get ready to put your fears aside as you get a ‘hands on’ opportunity to pet and handle snakes, lizards, crocodiles and many other reptiles. If the kids want to look more like a reptile, or a superhero, butterfly or fairy, take them along to have their faces painted. If your kids have energy left over after the trail run / walk, perhaps you can let them play on the jumping castles for a while. That is sure to tire them out!!
All activities are free, however you do have an opportunity to donate a gold coil, with all proceeds going to Myeloma Australia.
The Mornington Peninsula Scouts will host demonstrations throughout the day showing off their expertise in bush craft, collaboration and plain old fun! They will have their purpose built climbing frame present on the day which is designed to challenge all kids large and small.
