Tell me more: Moreton Bay Region's Teddy Bears Picnic is a really fun and popular event for little kids! Aimed at kids under school age, there's lots of entertainment and activities on offer - it's a great way to get your little ones out and about in a safe and relaxed setting. The jumping castle was hard to get past - so much fun and it was great for the little kids to have one all to themselves without sharing with the older kids! There was more than just that on offer with a baby animal farm, face painting heaps of art and craft and of course teddy bears were everywhere, including a nice little teddy bear parade! There was even free teddy bear biscuits and fruit for our picnic! This annual event takes place in different locations so make sure you check out the details of the event - and make sure you check out what the theme is for the day! A really nice day out for the little ones!

Tell me more: Brisbricks is a not-for-profit group, staffed by volunteers who love Lego! They love to show off their amazing Lego creations through their Lego fan expos and through these days they raise money for charities! Their Pine Rivers Expo is really cool - heaps of amazing creations (we could watch the trains for hours!), lots of Star Wars (both Lego and characters) and plenty of Lego items for sale - from single bricks through to full sets and lots of Lego themed accessories! Some of the displays are interactive as well - like the remote control 4WD track which was hard to get the kids away from! There's also an area for the kids where they can sit and make their own creations - so much Lego fun! You might even get drawn back to your childhood - like we did when we found a full table of complete sets from when we were kids! We know that much has change in the world of Lego over the years, but the basis of the standard bricks remains! Yay for Lego!

Tell me more: A really great and beneficial event initiated by the Multicultural Association of Caboolture And Surrounds Inc (MACS) and now running for over 16 years, this event has become one of the must-see events in the Moreton Bay (and Brisbane) region! There are heaps of performers, food and music from many different countries being showcased in order to give all in attendance a touch of the different cultures that now call this great region home! Add to that some really fun rides and entertainment for the kids, and it quickly becomes clear why this event is so popular and it's easy to see why it continues to run after all these years! A very fun afternoon out and a great way to increase your exposure to different cultures!
