THE spotlight was on young children’s performers with crowd favourites Peppa Pig and Lalaloopsy taking to the main stage at Fun4Kids yesterday.
The duo got children to their feet with upbeat songs and games.
Football WAG and stylist Renee Enright and son, Boh, 1, enjoyed a day out at the festival.
The wife of Geelong footballer Corey, Mrs Enright will return today with her brother and his children.
She said it was great to experience Fun4Kids for the first time.
“I am absolutely enjoying it,” she said.
“We have loved Peppa Pig, the petting zoo and the master kitchen.”
The Stephens family from Eltham, in Melbourne’s north-east, has been coming to the festival for five years. Michael, 11, Josiah, 9, Timothy, 5, and Jacob, 3, are spending the school holidays in Warrnambool with their mother Andrea.
Mrs Stephens said the family buys an eight-day pass to the festival and they come every day.
“The children look forward to it every year,” she said. “It’s our winter trip.”
Mrs Stephens said the storybook world was always a hit with her kids.
“There’s something new each day,” she said.
“They never get bored.”
In the dream store zone at the art gallery, Claire and Elliott Munday, from Portland, whispered their dream for a new pet into the plastic bottles.
Claire, 3, and Elliott, 5, enjoyed Peppa Pig and the farm animals throughout the day.
Dreams scribbled across bottles included ‘meeting Harry Styles’, ‘becoming a famous movie or pop star’ and ‘flying an aeroplane’.
