So perhaps I panicked, it has been know to happen once or twice. "Mummy, I can see the monkeys", was very quickly followed by, "Quick, follow mummy, I am leading us to face painting!" Seriously, I burnt 400 calories this morning to be greeted by an empty field, 2 smiling teenagers handing me a show bag and a chance at first place in which ever event we next wish to choose. Wow. Cool. Quiet. Did nobody else see the free family fun day sign that has been on the main street for the last 2 months. (Did Fat Cat win again?) I'd been wanting to challenge the crowds, this was a bit of a let down.
The stage show starts and features a man dressed for a Hawaiian holiday, that sounds like Iain Hewitson from 'Hueys Cooking' show, and tells cheesey jokes like he is drunk at a Christmas Party. His side kick is Super Dog. Adversary to Fat Cat. Large mute fluffy dog with a red cape and no pants. I am always a little surprisd that these characters created to entertain children don't adorn the basic undergarments known to be expected in todays society. The children were shown a large bag of lolly pops at the beginnig of the show, so this managed to maintain their interest until the conclusion when they finally reaped their sugary reward for staying the duration.
