Animals abound on Magic Island

To celebrate Children's Day this year, Siam Paragon is bringing a bunch of animals to the "Adventure of Magic Island" at Parc Paragon from today until Sunday.

Shows by international street art performers are among the highlights of the ‘Adventure of Magic Island’ event which runs from today until Sunday at Parc Paragon.

For children, this is a rare chance to view a parade of fancy animal characters created by street art performers from across the globe. The line-up includes a family of giraffes, colourful struzzi and dancing antelopes performed by stilt walkers from the celebrated Netherlands-based street theatre company Teatro Pavana.

Australian Roos, an outfit of skyrunner kangaroos, will top up the fun while musicians from Germany will transform to roosters and hens in order to present funny music.

These professional street art performers have entertained people all over the world at famous fairs and carnivals in England, Italy, France, Germany, Spain, Holland, Belgium, Canada, Japan and Hong Kong.

The parade runs from 4pm to 7pm today and tomorrow. On Children's Day and Sunday it runs from 11am to 6pm. Admission to the parade is free of charge.

Also on the cards are adventure activities and games at the Magic Island theme park where children can hunt for treasures such as dinosaur eggs and come face to face with 3m-tall predator, the T-Rex. The park also boasts a cute carousel, mini boats, a balloon castle, a pirate ship and many more. Entrance fee is 30 and 50 baht per game per person.

Fun activities also await children at Fashion Hall on the 1st floor. They include music and dance performances by students of Siam Paragon's Explorium Edutainment zone, Siam Ocean World's cute sea creature mascots.
