Any parent will know that keeping the kids entertained and happy on a holiday can sometimes be an impossible task - but that's exactly where the much-anticipated The Kids Weekend steps in for 2013!
This free event kicks off just in time for those September school holidays, so if you've been looking for the best family holiday destinations you'll definitely want to check out Surfers Paradise from September 21 - 22.
What is it?
The Kids Weekend is bit of a Surfers Paradise tradition, celebrating the start of the September holidays with an exciting program of events and entertainment.
The two days set the stage for a "top-to-bottom" takeover of Surfers Paradise that's one of the best children's events of the year, packed full of fun activities for kids to make the most of - and the best thing is, it's all free!
Last year saw The Wiggles favourite Dorothy the Dinosaur making a grand entrance to the festivities and entertaining everyone with her live show, and this year is sure to be no different with a variety of musical and other acts scheduled to perform.
Even more events will be held at the second Kids Weekend location of The High Street, so your children are sure to get a blast out of the experience.
