Kid’s Party Venues Christchurch

Kid’s Party Venues Christchurch

I like to try and come up with new and original places to host my kid’s parties. We have had a great little ‘bike themed party’ at Christchurch’s ‘hidden treasure’ the Westburn Bike Park in Burnside and a ‘frozen themed party’ at Soyo Frozen Yogurt Cafe in Riccarton. Sometimes places you may not think to host a party will actually work well. ‘If you don’t ask, you don’t get’, so there is no harm in asking if it is possible to use a place as a party venue. I’ve researched lots of great places and I hope this is a helpful resource for you. I would like to keep this article updated so if you know somewhere fabulous that I have missed please let me know.
