What to do in and around the Mother City
The latest round-up of exciting and fun activities for the whole family!
Shopping for a Cause:
The Constantia Gift Fair 2016 raises funds for the South African Riding for The Disabled.
Children enter free and there is a kids play area for the little ones and a chance for older kids to spend their pocket money on good quality accessories and gifts.
It takes place from 2 to 6 November.
Award-winning author Lauren Beukes introduces and reads her latest book on 5 November. A children's book designed to nurture the creativity and imagination, it consists of 20 rhymes describing 20 of the weirdest and wildest creatures, illustrated by children.
Get your Skates on:
Every Monday at 18h00, a crowd gathers at Queens Beach to push, roll or skate its way along the Sea Point Promenade. Promenade Mondays are open to all. Be a part of it!
The newest exhibit at the Two Oceans Aquarium is a series of eerily-lit jellyfish in a dark mirrored room. A hypnotically calming experience for parents and children alike! Read a review of the new jellyfish exhibition.
It's open every day from 09h30 to 18h00.
Concert in Comfort:
Make your child's first concert experience an easy one and take them to see the film of Mumford & Sons performing live in Pretoria.
Filmed in HD and with surround sound, it should give them a good taste of the real thing, but without the traffic. See the trailer here.
Sharing is Caring:
Take your whole family on the Proud2B an Organ Donor Walk and teach them about the value of charity while sharing some fresh air and stunning views. Sign up online or just turn up on the day - 5 November.
On Your Bike:
A short course with bumps and banked corners, the Deer Park Epic Pump Track opened recently for local children to have fun practising their mountain biking skills. Open daily 07h00 to 19h00.
