Childrens splash about at water wonderland

Carnival City will be alive with the sound of thrilled children splashing in a water wonderland on December 5.

The staff of Carnival City and Afrisun Trust, as part of the seventh annual Christmas Cheer project, will host approximately 600 underprivileged children at the water park, which will be set up on Carnival Citys soccer field between 8am and 3.30pm.

The youngsters, aged between five and 13 years, will be treated to various games, including a parachute ride, a large foam pit with a foam machine, three water slides, a 10x10m pool with water balls, a 6x6m pool with paddle and bumper boats and five different jumping castles, all finished off with snow and bubble machines.

The children will also be treated to sandwiches, sliced fresh fruit, water and juice, which will be served throughout the day. Of course it isnt Christmas until Santa visits, so he will be popping in to deliver gifts to all the children.

Carnival City and Afrisun Trust have each pledged R100 000 to this initiative.
