Just when you thought it's safe to visit again now the Semaphore Music Festival is over, Semaphore is kicking off with another huge free festival on Saturday November 1.

Semafest 2014 is being run by the Semaphore Surf Life Saving Club as a thank you to the community that they serve, and everyone in Adelaide can be a beneficiary.

It's a family fun day packed with activities for kids and fun things to do. The day kicks off at 11am at the Point Malcolm Reserve in Semaphore Park, just down the road from Fort Glanville. Kids and toddlers in Adelaide will be overwhelmed with choices when they arrive, with free rides and things to do.

Children can fly on a chair-o-plane ride, scale the bouncy castle walls, or zoom down the giant slide. From 12.30 pm until 2.30 pm they can try Nipper surf sports activities, and when they need to pause for a recharge they can watch hip hop and cheer squad dance demos.

Once you've knocked up an appetite, enjoy the best gourmet street food in Adelaide that our fleet of food trucks can bring. Some of the confirmed food trucks include Chimmichurri Grill, Phat Buddha Rolls, Delectaballs, Papas Hotdogs, Churroz, Bodris coffee and cakes.

Of course there's free live entertainment by local bands, and you can watch some action packed demonstrations of helicopter and jet ski rescues. Parents can enjoy a tipple at the outdoor bar with boutique beers & wine available, and bop along to popular radio station Fresh FM who will be broadcasting live from Semafest.

On a nice warm day I can't thing of a better place to go for a swim than Semaphore Park, as there will be no shortage of helpers from Semaphore Surf Life Saving Club if anyone gets into difficulties.

At 7.45 pm relax after the day's excitement with a free movie as the sun sets - the musical comedy "Muppets Most Wanted" will be a great hit and the perfect way to end the day.

Semafest 2014 is guaranteed to be a huge day of fun things to do so bring your friends, your family, even your mother in law. Dogs are fine too, but will need to be on leash.

I almost decided to go grab my grand daughter and mother in law - then I went outside and realized it is quite chilly today. Hmm - I have an hour or so to think on it!
