Stirling Park & Duidgee Park, Toodyay Sat, 5 Aug, 10am - 3pm
This is one of the traditional locations for Avon Descent spectators. From the event name, we can guess the focus of the day would be on various food trucks on site. But they are not all, as other types of entertainment would be on hands too for big as well as little people you may bring.
The City of Swan is using a different location this year for spectators to watch and cheer the competition. In between watching and cheering, enjoy the entertainment on stage, cooking demonstrations, market stalls, food truck, giveaways, rides, workshops and more.
This is another traditional location for watching the competitors rush by. The City of Belmont provides a marquee with seating, live race commentary, and a big screen, so you can enjoy the race in comfort. Or, if you're there just for the kids entertainment, you can visit the Junior Sports Expo onsite and various other children's activities. If you're a City of Belmont resident it gets even better, as you can get free food and beverage if you bring your Opportunity Card.
We are at the tail end of the Perth City Winter Art Season.

(City of Perth, until 31 Aug). Find the complete list at visitperthcity.com.
In the picture book Colour Me by Western Australia's Ezekiel Kwaymullina and Moira Court, a rainbow is used to depict diversity. In this exhibition, we will see the original screen prints and draft materials used in the creation of the picture book.
A university Open Day may sound like a strange way to spend a precious family weekend, but it actually makes sense, especially if you have a teenager about to finish highschool in a year or two. First of all, of course your teenager could find out all they need about their study of interest, but more than that, your little ones need not feel that they are being dragged about for the benefit of big brother or sister, as the Open Day caters for younger kids as well by providing various fun activities such as glitter hair braiding, getting a caricature of yourself, and balloon characters. Win-win.
We adults are often keen to show off our general knowledge on Quiz Nights, so why not let our next generation do it too? If you have a teenager or two in the house (between 12-18 years old), encourage them to register online. If they don't win anything, at least they'll get free pizza.
