School holidays are a time to do something out of the ordinary as two Parkes kids experienced this week.
Azalia and Harleigh Brown treated their Pop, Michael Brown from Newcastle, for an exhilarating hour-long trike ride around Parkes on a motor trike ride.
“There were lots of screams of joy during the outing,” said Peter Judd from Trike Adventures in Dubbo who was the ‘chauffeur’.
Harleigh said it sounded amazing when the trike made a lot of vroom-vroom noise at the Coles carpark. It was a very enjoyable ride for Michael, but he said the best part was the smiles on the kids’ faces. Azalea was not so sure what to make of it, but her Pop said he could see her enjoying it.
Peter took them all around Parkes including the look-out and out on the Forbes road. It was a beautiful sunny day, and although a bit chilly, the excitement and adrenaline quickly warmed them up again.
Peter is a well-known face in Parkes as he offers trike rides every year at the Elvis Festival. He said it was no problem coming here to give the family a fun holiday experience.
With COVID-19 restrictions lifted, there are more opportunities this holiday for families to enjoy the parks and other activities.
