This will be a day full of fun. It'll be totally about the games and the fun we have with them. And, not the electronic kind of games - I'm talking about the hands-on kind. The type of game that you sit around a table and play with or run around outside doing. The fun games and hobbies that involve you, your family and friends.

This is the first year for the Expo and it's hoped that it will become an annual event.

The Expo will be held at the Mannum Showgrounds and is sure to have something that everyone of all ages will enjoy.
