ROLL UP! ROLL UP! SOMETHING ROLL UP! ROLL UP! SOMETHING SPECTACULAR IS COMING TO SOVEREIGN HILL THESE SCHOOL HOLIDAYS

Step right up for some ‘high day’ fun at the Sovereign Hill Spectacular,  on these school holidays, Saturday 21 September – Sunday 6 October, at Sovereign Hill.    
Join in traditional (and often downright strange) 1850s fairground games. There’ll  be  silly pantomimes, Mr Smith’s camera obscura and a magic lantern    show.    
Impress your friends as you  test your juggling skills, walk the death-defying  balance beam and tackle the high striker. Strike a pose for    a  funny photo in  a ‘tableaux vivant’, make your craziest  face to    win a gurnin’ through the braffin’ contest and visit a pop-up    theatre to stage your own puppet show.   
Archie and Uggy, the miniature donkeys, are seasoned crowd pleasers and there’ll be a whole new menagerie of baby animals to meet, as well as all your  favorite Sovereign Hill activities.
