Children parade at a fancy dress competition and look at animals at an Italian zoo.
Titles read: "JUNIORS JOY DAY!"
Durban, South Africa.
Various shots of children between the age of about 5 and 10 years walking about and posing at an outdoor fancy dress competition. Winning children pose on the steps of a bandstand (?) - one is dressed as Mae West (? - commentator says "Come up and see me sometime").
At a continental zoo (probably in Italy) we see children looking through the bars of a cage at a family of exotic birds and other exotic birds. We also see porcupines, ostriches, turtles (a little boy sits on a turtle's shell and cries) and monkeys - one of which is seen climbing over a newsreel camera.
