Mall to become 'Cirque du Soleil style arena' for Cronulla Easter Show

Bumper crowds are expected again at this year's Cronulla Easter show after a record turnout in 2018.

Last year, an estimated 15,000 to 18,000 people a day visited the mall , well up on the 2017 attendance of more than 50,000 visitors.

The event will be held across the Easter weekend from Friday to Monday.

"Cronulla Plaza will be transformed into a Cirque du Soleil style arena, filled with highly creative and artistic acts, stilt walkers and aerial acrobatics and magicians," the promoters say.

"There will be show bags, farm animals, face painting, pony rides, entertainment, Sideshow Alley, market stalls and lots more.

"Some of Australia's best will be performing with something different every day over the four days.

"Proudly supported by Channel 9, come and see the live news desk and test your skills as a news announcer.

"The show is open all Easter long weekend just near the beach. Entry is free."
