Where are you taking the family this weekend?
New school year is starting, finally. That should not hinder us from enjoying family weekend outings, so check out these five and have fun.

Market Square, Subiaco
Sun, 3 Feb; 5-7pm

We're at the tail end of this summer series and this concert is the last one for this season, featuring Aviida (pictured), a husband-wife team (Paula Parore and Clay Petera) performing energetic soul and R&B songs. Market Square is very close to Subiaco train station, so this is an opportunity to leave the wheels at home.

Boorna Waanginy: The Trees Speak
Fraser Ave, Kings Park
8-11Feb; 8-11pm

Perth Festival

This event is part of Perth Festival. It has been done before and was so successful that they decide to do it again. So it's basically a 1.5km long walk with light installations and sound effects along Fraser Avenue in Kings Park, finishing at Pioneer Women's Memorial. What a great way to spend a balmy summer evening with the family.

If you like gardening but don't have a big garden, this is for you. The expo is all about soil-less indoor gardening. You can get a free ticket here or if you wish, you could buy a Golden Ticket for $5 and receive a 300 ml Reiziger Bloom Minerals (usually $19.98).

Perth Chinese New Year Fair
Northbridge Piazza, Chinatown, and along James St, Northbridge
Sun, 10 Feb; 12noon-9pm

We are welcoming the year of the pig in Chinese Zodiac this year. Chung Wah Association is organising a big street party to usher in the new year. There will be a multicultural street parade, food stalls, cooking demonstration, lion and dragon dance, martial arts and
other cultural performances and games, rides and more. The main stage will be at Northbridge Piazza with the street parade and stalls along James St between the Piazza and William St. Chinatown (off Roe St) will also become a smaller stage with some performances between 1.30-4pm.

Desert River Sea: Portraits of the Kimberley Exhibition
Art Gallery of WA, Perth Cultural Centre
From 9 Feb

Kimberley Art

Art Gallery of WA is opening a new exhibition on 9 Feb titled "Desert River Sea: Portraits of the Kimberley." It looks interesting in itself, but even more interesting is its opening day when they organise Kimberley artists to come and showcase their skills. So on Sat 9 Feb from 10am to 4pm there will be workshops (most with limited space, first come first serve), live music, demonstrations, and talks. I reckon it's a great way to spend a Saturday with the family.
