There'll be lots of family fun on offer at Teddy Bears Picnics in both Wānaka and Queenstown this weekend.

There'll be fun for kids of all ages, with everything from story telling, a silent disco, mural painting, bubbles, a free sausage sizzle, food vendors, face painting, colouring in, magical creatures, life sized teddy bears, sports and games, a bouncy castle and much more.

So bring your favourite, most loved Teddy Bear and a picnic and come on down.  

Both events are open to everyone and free to attend. Koha donations to Plunket welcome.
