There's Fun and Games For Everyone At This Free Family Event
Although school holidays are usually happy times when precious family memories are created, they can often be a cause of intense anxiety for parents as they attempt to plan fun yet affordable activities to keep their little darlings constructively occupied. Fortunately, every spring there are plenty of fabulous family-friendly festivals around the Perth metro area, many of them free of charge, which solve this eternal dilemma: at least for one day.

One exciting event which will be held during the next school holidays at the new northern beach-side suburb of Alkimos is the Trinity Spring Festival. Taking place on Sunday, October 6th, the festival is an incentive of Trinity Alkimos, a master-planned coastal community situated just a couple of minutes from the beautiful Indian Ocean, and a short ten minute drive from all the facilities of Joondalup. Not only will the festival be an enjoyable family-friendly day, but it will also celebrate the return of the Trinity Arts and Produce Market after its hiatus over the cooler months.

If you have some free time be sure to pop this event into your social calendar, as there will be something to keep everyone happy here, from the youngest member of the family to the oldest. While kids will enjoy the free carnival rides and face-painting, grown-ups can peruse the various market stalls (the fresh produce and local handicrafts are especially popular) and chill out, listening to the live entertainment provided by Darren Reid and the Soul City Groove. Younger children will be especially enchanted by the festival's special guests of honour: Woody and Jessie from Toy Story, and Dora the Explorer along with her side-kick, Diego.

In a nutshell, the Trinity Spring Festival promises to be a beaut family-friendly event with something for everyone. These days, it's rare to find anything that is free of charge and children's entertainment is notoriously expensive. If your wallet is still recovering from the Royal Perth Show, but you've got active children at home who are still demanding to be entertained, this is an event which you can't afford to miss. For a great day out, why not pack a picnic lunch to enjoy on the beach afterwards?
