Denmark Primary School will host thousands of visitors at its Mid-Winter Fete on Sunday.

The school is expecting about 2000 visitors, and former Perth Wildcats and Boomers centre Paul Rogers will also make an appearance on the day.

The school P&C event will include more than 40 stalls, plus a range of games and entertainment in a bid to raise money for new playgrounds.

School principal Damian Luscombe said he was looking forward to the festivities.

“I encourage everyone to come out and enjoy the day. The P&C team has really brought out a fantastic mix of entertainment, games and market stalls this year,” he said. “Not only will it be a great day out, the funds raised will be put towards replacing four playgrounds at the school which are close to the end of their life.”

He said the school was hoping to raise enough money to purchase new interactive whiteboards for the classrooms.

Stalls will fill the undercover area at the school offering traditional fete favourites such as a prize wheel and fun games such as a spooky house, lucky ducks and find the feather in the snow. Visiting stallholders will provide great entertainment, including pony rides and activities from Denmark Thrills, karate demonstrations and a cooking competition judged by celebrity chef Anna Gare.

Young visitors will enjoy face painting, bouncy castles and craft activities such as slime-making and instant snowballs.

There will be a variety of talented Denmark musicians performing live, including TAFE and high schools students.

The fete runs from 10am- 2pm.
