THINGS TO DO: ImagiNation Children’s Festival

28 August 2018

Planning entertainment for the kids during school holidays is always a parent’s biggest challenge. You want to keep the kids active and off screens, but you don’t want to spend the weekly budget on a camp or spend hours searching for options that suit each child.

Solving the school holiday dilemma for parents across the region this Spring, the City of Logan is hosting the ImagiNation Children’s Festival, bringing the best holiday fun together in one place.

There’s 16 days of free or low-cost fun for children 0–12 years including a ninja obstacle course, muddy wonderland, cooking, dancing, art and craft and even how to make robots work.

With over 170 activities on offer, from arts, culture and cooking, to sport, adventure, technology and more… there’s something for everyone down the M1 these spring school holidays.
