Step right up for some spectacular ‘high day and holiday’ fun at Sovereign Hill. Join in the traditional, and often downright strange, 1850s fairground games. There will 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 will be a whole new menagerie of baby animals to meet. And most of all, do not miss the Grand Parade at lunchtime every day.
