      History of Children’s Day

      A photographic exhibition Come and view this special exhibition of photographs of the Redwoods Children’s Day in Rotorua Lakes Council Galleria. On display from 2 November 2018 until 24 January 2019, these beautiful images showcase the forest celebrations since its inception more than 18 years ago. The Travelling Tuataras were the first to organise a Family Fun Day in the Redwood Forest and this has evolved and grown over the years. Jill Walker of The Travelling Tuataras remembers that when they first began the event in the Redwoods they did not enjoy the forest for what it had to offer. They included activities into the forest activities which had little to do with the environment. They quickly embraced the special venue and changed the nature of activities to utilise the uniqueness of the forest and all it offers. In 2004 Rotorua Lakes Council joined forces with the Travelling Tuataras to make the event bigger and brighter. Visitors enjoyed the opportunity to explore the forest in a new way and celebrate children in this beautiful playground. In 2009 Children’s Day was combined with the Redwoods Family Fun Day and in 2010 the first Redwoods Children’s Day celebrations were held. Children’s Day is a national celebration observed annually on the first Sunday in March and has become a much-loved date on the summer events calendar for families. The day’s success is only made possible by the incredible effort and support of community organisations, local artists and an enthusiastic team of volunteers. The Redwoods Forest brings families and nature together is the perfect setting for a day of celebration, offering endless possibilities for the exploration, creativity, imagination and fun. History of ‘Children’s Day at the Redwoods’ exhibition is on display in the Rotorua Lakes Council Galleria (Haupapa Street) from 2 November 2018 until 24 January 2019, Monday – Friday from 8am - 5pm (except from 12pm on the 21 December 2018 until 7 January 2018 when the council offices are closed).
