If you notice kids dressed in crazy costumes and flexing their muscles wandering around Dapto this afternoon, don’t be alarmed – they are just heading to the Super Hero Wrestling Disco at the Ribbonwood Centre.
The disco has been organised by Dapto pro wrestler Benny Coles – also known as Iron Jay – and his team of wrestlers to give kids a fun night out these school holidays and raise money for KidzWish, with $2 from every ticket sold plus extra donations for other activities at the event going to the Illawarra charity.
As well as a wrestling show, there will also be games such as limbo and tug of war, dancing, a barbecue, face painting and raffles.

‘‘We’ve taken all the violence associated with wrestling out and turned it into an entertaining show for kids,’’ Coles said.
The best-dressed wrestler will also win a championship wrestling belt.
Coles said he was looking for a character who stood out from the crowd.
‘‘Tassles, face paint, headbands, cool boots, the works,’’ he said.
Today’s disco starts at 4pm and goes until 6.15pm.
It is for children and teens up to 14 years old, but kids under five need parental supervision.
Tickets can be bought online or at the door.
