Geronimo Festival Activities Break Down - by Age

Geronimo Festival, May bank holiday 2016, family day out

2 more months until Geronimo Festival! We are really excited and looking forward to all the fun we'll be having at the festival! As we have an 8 years old and almost 5 years old, we have to plan our day properly so that they (and us!) can both get enough fun time. It's a bit hard to see how we should plan everything based on the initial line ups, which you can find here and here, but Geronimo has released a list of their activities that is broken down by age group recently, so we can plan ahead for our day!

I'm listing them below for your convenience as well. For a large festival like this where activities is everywhere in the park, it is good to pre-plan your day to get the most out of it.
