PLAYGROUP Tasmania has rescheduled Launceston's Teddy Bears Picnic for next Thursday, due to yesterday's bad weather.
The picnic will still be held at City Park from 10am to 1pm and will include a jumping castle, face painting, fairy tales and games.
Organisers have encouraged children to dress in a horror theme as the picnic will fall on the same day as Halloween.
Playgroup Tasmania has held the picnic annually for almost 40 years.
The picnic this year was to coincide with Children's Week.
A calendar of other Children's Week activities can be viewed on Launceston City Council's website: www.launcestion.tas.gov.au
