This times is my weekend recommendation is Gold coast show. It is from today to Sunday, at Broadwater parklands and Owen Park. I would call it, the Gold Coast version of Ekka, a giant carnival, and there are farm animals for kids, mobile games and music shows, and even Showbags. Also, it is also a fireworks show at 7 o’clock in the present and tomorrow nights. The most important thing about the “Little” EKKA is the free admission! So I believe it will be suitable for your family size!
Venue: board water parkland and Owen park。
Free to Entry
Yesterday, I went from Redcliffe after a two days business trip. When I came back, I saw Pelican Park hanging the banner of kite fest. When I back home, I went online and checked it out. I found out this Saturday and Sunday, there will be a kite fest. A lot of international and local kite masters will join this event, or you can make a kite with the children and fly it in the public kite area. Besides, there are also market and live music performances. It should be suitable for your family. I am only worried about whether tomorrow will rain or not.

EKKA, I believe that is the most significant event in Brisbane, started today! This event holds in RNA showground until 19/8. Firstly, this event is an agriculture show. Of course, during the show, you can see a lot of livestock and crops.
Nowadays, EKKA got a lot of various activities. It sounds like a carnival.
It got some rides and some live performances and firework displays at night!
If you go to EKKA, you should miss their show bags which is a bag contains retail merchandise. This merchandise will have much higher value than the price tag of a showbag.
Also, there is the gourmet plaza again. That is similar to a street food market; you can enjoy from street foods in there. The stalls are from various restaurants, the choices are from Mexican to Italy.
Please do not miss that! However, the ticket price is quite high. For adults, each ticket cost $35. Children ticket cost $20. If you are a member of RACQ, they will have 10% discount on the ticket price, if you choose to go on 14/8, RACQ got 15%off ! please find the further information from RACQ website
There is a cheaper option if you just want to watch the night show and to have dinner there. You can get a Twilight Ticket for $18 if you choose to enter after 6pm.
Garden city new library opened on last Wednesday. However, the opening events were on last Saturday. I think that is a good idea, which allows most of the working parents to bring. I went there too. When I arrived, there was an afternoon tea for all visitors. That was quite good.
Moreover, I found the library got bigger. There are rooms. Even a room calls secret garden for little kids, that is quite good. Besides that, on that day, some STEM tools has shown off, such as 3d printers and small robots.
They are very useful for those young kids. I saw a lot of kids were keen on that at the session. Of course, this library still had a lot of foreign languages booms such as Chinese and Korean. After this visit, I like that library then the old one
