A lot of Hoopla

It's definitely school holidays time; you can feel it in the air. Or maybe it's the abundance of kids - everywhere. The non-traditional easter weather (mostly fine) has been fortunate for those going to the Sydney Royal Easter Show and the Sydney Family Show; as well as Saturday's Golden Slipper. Fingers crossed it is this good when Autumn Carnival hits Randwick.

There's fun and shenanigans on at Darling Harbour for the easter long weekend too - 'run away with the circus' seems to be the message at the Hoopla Festival with a big top set up near Harbourside and stages around Cockle Bay. Acrobats, clowns, buskers and more circus mirth seems to keep the kiddies quiet - at least momentarily.

Look mum, no hands!

Beneath whatever highway that is visible from Cockle Bay

Elegant and courageous

No hands, no feet

Cockle Bay, as ever

The Hoopla Festival is on for one more day - take the kids, or the kid within.

Hi Lorraine - Yes, a lovely long weekend; the showers stayed away for once.

Hi suze - I don't know... They had a sign saying something like 8-12 year olds, so I didn't feel like walking in... :S
