MORDIALLOC’S Peter Scullin Reserve will light up once more when Smart Amusements brings back the Mordialloc Christmas Summer Carnival.
Running from Boxing Day until 10 January 2016, it’s the perfect time to bring your family down and enjoy all that summer has to offer. All your favorite rides will be whirring into action, including the expo wheel, riptide, dragon coaster, sizzler, dodgem cars, the fun slide, tea cups and waterballs. Activities will kick off as soon as the gates open and will run til 8pm each night.
If you’re going to be hanging around for a few hours, Smart Amusements are offering wristband sessions. Purchasing a wristband will let you tackle all the carnival’s activities to your heart’s content. There are two sessions each day, from 2pm-5pm and 5pm-8pm, but single-ride tickets can be purchased on-site too.
“Highlights of this year’s carnival is a family-friendly fireworks display, which carnival organiser Smart Amusements will be putting on at 9.30pm on New Year’s Eve. We hope all the families and residents of Mordialloc and the surrounding areas will come and enjoy the carnival on New Year’s Eve and stay for the fireworks.
The carnival was a great success last year, but patrons on New Year’s Eve were disappointed there were no fireworks, so we have worked really hard with the council and local authorities to organise an early family fireworks show which will hopefully become a regular part of the carnival,” festival organiser Jay Jones said.
“A lot of people in Mordialloc remember the carnival from so many years ago. It was always very popular and we decided to put plans in place to bring it back,” says Jane. “We put together an application to the council and the mayor loved the idea. We got support from the Mordialloc Sporting Club and Ray White Real Estate, and it’s all come together!”
Running Smart Amusements was a natural progression for the couple, so they’ve put a whole lot of time and expertise into the reinvention of the Mordialloc Carnival. As an amusement hire business, they supply rides, games and food to school fetes, and hire equipment out to local councils.
