Mini Breeze, a small-scale version of Breeze on Tour, is hosted in parks by local communities and funded this year by the Youth Activities Fund. It offers 0-19 year olds something to do during the school holidays. With arts, crafts, inflatables and media workshops all free to use. Refreshment stalls and possibly one or two other paid activities will also be available as well (please note money is required to use these facilities).
