Roving walkabout

From a realm far away, come curious mythical creatures, their kind unseen before. 

Gigantic hairy snails and their impish riders, slime their way along the streets, malls, and parklands of our cities and towns. Having fallen through a void into this world whilst travelling on an unknown shortcut, they've arrived, bewildered but fascinated.

 

Endowed with the capacity to play music, articulate wildly and leave a watery snail trail, the snails lumber on by to the amazement of onlookers and passers-by alike, with whom their overtly curious riders delight in playing with. Maybe one day, finding someone to point them in the direction home.

"Visually spectacular, this unique show was a huge success. It bought an atmosphere of magic to the event, with people gazing in wonderment."

"The magical creatures delight and charm young and old audiences alike with their strange enchanted presence, ... hugely successful whenever they appear." 
Awesome International Children's Festival. Australia

 

"The large snails slowly creeping through the crowd created a great spectacle and added significantly to the carnival atmosphere throughout the streets."
