Published: 11 Jul 2016 1:35pm

Kids' imaginations will soar this week when Questacon's Excited Particles troupe comes to town with their fun-filled show Balloonatic.

A one-person science show, Balloonatic explores all things amazing about the humble balloon.

Balloonatic is the latest instalment in the City of Wagga Wagga's Hall-A-Day Adventures outreach program, which has brought national and local performances to rural halls in the Wagga Wagga Local Government Area each July school holidays since 2013.

Hall-A-Day Adventures gives residents in rural villages a fantastic opportunity to see a quality production in their own backyard at a very low cost.

Following the performances, kids will be invited to roll up their sleeves and participate in a science-inspired craft activity run by the Museum of the Riverina.

The Hall-A-Day Adventures program heads to Galore for the first time this year, as well as Uranquinty, Oura, Collingullie and Ladysmith.

Uranquinty and Oura shows are both sell outs, limited tickets remain for all other shows.
