To celebrate the arrival of summer, Shanghai Family Kids Club and Kerry Hotel Pudong held a big BBQ and Movie Night Party at Kerry Hotel Pudong on 25th June 20011. The event ran from 4pm through 9pm and allowed Shanghai Family Kids Club Members to enjoy the new and exciting ‘Adventure Zone’ at the Kerry Hotel which incorporates a mixture of kids’ slides, jungle gym and other activities before sitting down for a BBQ meal (which was held inside due to weather conditions) and was then followed by a movie screening for the kids.
While the kids enjoyed their time in the Adventure Zone, parents had the opportunity to enjoy a wine tasting courtesy of Austen Morris Associates and The Wine Republic. This ‘adult zone’ allowed people to enjoy a glass of wine whilst chatting with Austen Morris Associates about financial advice and investment opportunities available to them as expats here in China. Guests also completed a wine quiz which put them in the running for the lucky draw prize during dinner to win one of 3 bottles of wines, supplied by The Wine Republic. And, as no movie is complete without fresh popcorn, Austen Morris Associates had cups of freshly popped popcorn for the kids to enjoy whilst watching Kung Fu Panda!
It was 4 o’clock and the registration table was already packed with Kids Club Member Families – Thank for your punctuality! After the members received their wrist bands, the kids were forwarded to the Adventure Zone on the 4th floor of the hotel, where they had a big space to hop, climb, slip around in and just have fun. And as for the kids that did not go to the Adventure Zone, they were entertained by Party Box with toys and arts & crafts making. While the kids enjoyed their time in the play area, dads and mums had the opportunity to taste wine brought by Wine Repbulic. It was a good time to chat with Austen Morris Associates about financial advice and future opportunities. A small wine quiz was prepared by Austen Morris Associates to test your knowledge, and it was also used as a raffle ticket. At 5:00PM there were 2 clowns organized by Kerry Hotel Pudong to entertain the kids. They brought smiles to the kids by making lots of balloon forms, such as balloon swords, crowns, flowers, and much more! The swords were especially popular.
The main course of the party started at 6:00PM – BBQ TIME! As the weather outside was bad, we celebrated the party in the Grand Ballroom 1 of the hotel. At approximately 5:45PM the Ballroom was filled with parents and kids. There were 40 tables in the room for more than 300 people. The food was placed on the tables on the right side, as well as on the left side. The BBQ menu consisted of bread, salad, soup, spaghetti, hotdogs, fries, various meats, skewers, and much more. Free flow home brewed beers were also offered to complete that BBQ feeling. After the main dishes, Kids Club Member Families enjoyed different kind of desserts, such as fruits and candy prepared by the hotel for the kids. More activitites were offered during the dining period, such as the lucky draw from Austen Morris Asssociates. Also, congratulations to the people who joined and shared their BBQ recipe with Shanghai Family. They received a bottle of sparkling wine sponsored by City’super in return for their entry.
After the yummy BBQ, the kids were directed to the theatre room. The room was completed with blankets and pillows and was a comfy sport for the kids to watch the movie “Rio” and enjoy some fresh popcorn, while the parents sampled the boutique beer from the Brew. Parents and kids went home with goodie-bags, and we hope that this event was enjoyable for you and met your expectations. Thanks to the all the members for coming!
