Where is it: Brookside Shopping Centre, Mitchelton
What's it all about: To coincide with the Ekka Public Holiday, Brookside Shopping Centre puts on a mini festival of its own - the Brookside Family Fun Day!
How can I join in: This was a free event to get in to, and once you had spent $5 or more at any Brookside Centre store on the day of the fair and you had access to the Family Fun Day activities!
Tell me more: For the Ekka Public Holiday we decided to visit Brookside's Family Fun Day! Any thoughts of a relaxing day off were quickly set aside as there was so much to do and see and it didn’t take long to realise that we would be coming home pretty exhausted! There were heaps of activities to keep the little kids occupied - jumping castle, cup and saucer rides, mini golf, super slide, baby animal farm, face painting and as a nice coincidence for National Science Week, there was even a 'Street Science' display! Add to that a few giveaways, competitions and showbags, this event had no problems with entertainment - particularly for the younger (6 and under) kids! And once we could take no more, it was reassuring to know that we had a few different cafe options within the centre to sit down for a cuppa! This was a really easy and fun day out!
