I'm a freelance writer living in Perth. Having 2 young kids with endless energy, we are always on the lookout for new outdoor activities.
Entertain the kids for free every first Sunday of the month
Piazzarama Northbridge is a monthly event that takes place on the first Sunday of the month. The lawn of the City of Perth's Northbridge Piazza (corner James & Lake Streets) will be full of kids and their families, all enjoying the free and fun activities for the day.
The Piazzarama Northbridge season runs from September through to May, resting just for the 3 winter months before starting again the following season. Every month there is a different theme and the dates and themes for 2015-2016 season are:
September 6, 2015: Outdoor Adventure (Father's Day)
October 4, 2015: Community Safety
November 1, 2015: Carnival Macabre
December 6, 2015: Festival of Christmas
January 3, 2016: Pirates & Fairies
February 7, 2016: Space & Science-->my personal favourite for the year
March 6, 2016: Bugs & Critters (Mother's Day)
April 3, 2016: Sweets & Treats/Easter (Eat Drink Perth)
May 1, 2016: Country Farm
On the day, some of the activities will match the theme, for example to match the theme for September, there will be among others Climbing Wall and "Make your Dad a special Father's Day key-ring and/or mask" Craft Workshop. Some of the other activities like baloon arts and face painting will be regularly there, giving a predictability that there's at least something the kids would love.
Baloon arts from Piazzarama Northbridge are pretty special
To start and end each entertaining Sunday, there will also be a family movie shown. For example, the September 2015 Piazzarama will have the following movies: The Lion King (1994, G) from 12-1.30pm and A Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb (2014, PG) from 2.30 to 4pm. The theme of the day will generally dictate the movie selection too, so we can be sure they will be varied from month to month.
Two movies on the big screen for each Piazzarama Northbridge
