The City of Casey and Melbourne Stars teamed up to provide the Melbourne Stars Casey Family Fun Day on Sunday 9 December 2012 at Casey Fields in Cranbourne East. 

Families were encouraged to come along to the fantastic free family event and meet the Melbourne Stars team including Captain Shane Warne, Sri Lankan Lasith Malinga, David Hussey, Cameron White and Brad Hodge along with Casey local, Clive Rose.

Families were able to get autographs from favourite Melbourne Stars players and get involved in cricket super clinics coordinated by local In2Cricket cricket clubs.  There was also the opportunity to watch the Sri Lankan Sunday Cricket Competition T20 match with Lasith Malinga tossing the coin.

Autographs were also available from the Melbourne Vixens, Melbourne Rebels and Melbourne Heart players who joined the Stars at Casey.

There was also a range of sporting activities and the chance to get information from Athletics Australia and Melbourne Football Club.

Families were able to enjoy the carnival atmosphere with roving entertainers, rides, jumping castle, face painting, music, stalls, prizes, giveaways and other family-friendly activities.

The Narre Warren Lions Club ensured that Santa also attended to meet the children and give them the opportunity to tell him what they wanted for Christmas.
