Children on parade in Nimbin

International Childrens Day was celebrated in Nimbin last Thursday with a street parade and a mini-fair attended by 300 people.

A Nimbin street parade marking International Childrens Day last week attracted 300 people, with preschools from around the district getting together for the day.

Co-ordinator Marie Hainaut from the Nimbin Family Centre said the day completely exceeded her expectations.

I couldnt be any happier than I am with the results, she said. It was just beautiful. The kids had a ball and the parents had a ball. The parade was really the best thing. It was quite a long march for the little kids but they handled it really well.

She said the idea was to showcase the children of the area and the parade culminated with a mini fair in Peace Park.

Its giving the children a voice, she said. But its also validating carers, parents and preschool teachers. Its about improving communities so families with young children feel included.
