It will be located on the FunZone behind the Pit Straight grandstand, and will feature an assortment of fun activities, including children's entertainers, bubble performances and a balloon modeller. Throughout the day there will be a variety of things to do, including colouring, loom bands and arts and crafts. Best of all, admission to the marquee is completely free of charge!
