Follow that camel - to Crystal Peaks centre

YOU could take the tram to join the holiday fun at Crystal Peaks… or you could just look out for the camels!

The exotic animals make their appearance in the East Mall Plaza on August 17. “This will be the very first time we have played host to camels!” said retail and marketing manager Laura Mathewson. “Customers will be able to get up close and touch them, so don’t forget the camera!”

The hump-backed beasts are among free attractions planned for the Sheffield shopping mall on Fridays throughout August.

On August 3 from 10am to 3pm visitors can make Olympic mascots using ready-prepared hand puppets, felt and stickers.

On August 10 there’s face painting, and on August 24 there’s a visit by Tiny the Dinosaur, 125 million years young and visiting at 11am, 1pm and 3pm.

The holiday fun comes to an end on August 31 from 10am to 4pm with a chance to beat the Textminator, a game of fast thumb work for young text fans.
