The 2017 running of Cardinia Shire Kids Night Out was on overwhelming success. Blessed with beautiful weather, over 2500 people flocked to the Pakenham Racecourse, many being local families enjoying the hospitality and entertainment provided by the Cardinia Shire and Pakenham Racing Club.

Some of the highlights of the event included the running races on the front lawn, relaxed family atmosphere in the rear courtyard which was full of kids rides, animal farm, and carnival games. The first 250 kids through the gate loved receiving their free Country Racing back pack full of goodies.

The local Nar Nar Goon Pony Club were treated to a ‘behind the scene’ tour of Australia’s latest racetrack which was enjoyed by the kids and parents.

Given the wonderful success of the night, everyone is looking forward to the 2018 event which is planned again for mid-January. A special thanks goes to the event sponsors and long term supporters the Cardinia Shire, and all the families who turned up on the night to make it such a great event.
