Cosplay Adelaide - Free School Holidays Activities at Mitcham Library
Finding free school holidays activities in Adelaide can be a bit hit and miss. Fortunately the April school holidays overlap with National Youth Week in South Australia, and there are a fistful of free things to do for young people all about SA.
This year the theme of National Youth Week is My Community is Your Community, highlighting the cultural diversity of South Australia. People have been working around the state to create a program of fun things to do for young people aged between 12 - 25 years old.
