The Powerpuff Girls Summer Fun

Blossom, Bubbles and Buttercup are back to save the day, except this school holidays, they're saving your kiddos from the clutches of boredom. There will be no time for tantrums as Professor Utonium takes the stage with a science-meets-magic show. Thereafter, get to take pictures with him, together with The Powerpuff Girls and the Paddlepop Lion. For the energizer bunnies, learn the moves to the animated show's new theme song ‘Who’s Got The Power?’ during the high-powered ‘Work It Out’ dance sessions. There will also be on-stage quiz and games throughout the day. Off-stage, there are just as many entertainment options for the whole family – families can compete against one another in a larger-than-life Jenga-style game or win prizes by toppling the evil Mojo Jojo and his henchmen with a sling shot before they take over Townsville. For the little ones, there are art and craft corners and a cushy TV space to view their favourite Cartoon Network shows.
