The Little Groovers on the Green festival returns on Saturday, bringing some of the biggest names in kids’ entertainment to town.
Playschool giant Justine Clarke, ABC for Kids’ Nay Nay and the Mik Maks from Victoria will fill the stage of a festival which last year drew 600 people from all over the state.
“It’s a nice opportunity for kids to see performers you usually have to go to Sydney for,” Junee Preschool director Rebecca Hart said.
“I'm really looking forward to making a trip out to the beautiful Riverina to seeing everyone's smiling faces and to hear them sing with me,” Justine Clarke said.
Nay Nay said it’s great to have the opportunity to perform outside of big cities.
Her relationship with fans, who usually only get to see her on a flat screen, is brought to life in her stage show.
“Kids see you as their friend rather than a star, they feel really at home with you because you’re together every day. It’s really special,” she said.
She said for her the driving force behind her performances is forming a connection with each child and being a role model for young girls.
“There’s not that many out there so being a bit of a stronger, female driven character is important to me,” she said.
Kids go “full banana” for her live performance of Bubble Pop, featuring a massive machine churning out millions of bubbles.
“If it rains, still come on down, get crazy wet and do the rain stomp with me!” Nay Nay said.
