Roll up to the most fantastical showcase of colour, beauty and excitement at this year’s Tesselaar KaBloom, Festival of Flowers.
Held on Tesselaar’s flower farm in Silvan, from 6-28 April, KaBloom is a brand new spectacle where circus arts and flowers collide.
Step right up to see the world’s first KaBloom circus spectacular where artists from Melbourne’s own CircaNICA, the circus agency of the National Institute of Circus Arts (NICA), perform a modern extravaganza every day – think contortionists amongst the marigolds, acrobats in the snapdragons and performing jugglers in the petunias.
Fun for all the family, children can watch daily performances of the world renowned The Circus Firemen, and the best part is children -16 and under- have free entry into the Festival every day.
The infamous tractor train will be on continuous rotation around the flower fields where visitors are encouraged to make the most of the instagram worthy views whilst on board.
Following in his grand-parents footsteps, fourth generation nurseryman, Paul Tesselaar said that he is thrilled to provide another opportunity for people to visit their well-known flower farm.
“There is nothing quite like KaBloom anywhere else in Australia. World class circus arts combined with millions of flowers in bloom provides the perfect stage for an amazing day out.”
