Are you looking for something to do with the family this weekend?
Here is a roundup of the awesome FREE events happening all over Sydney on Saturday and Sunday. From one end of the city to the other, and everywhere in between, there's something on for all members of the family.
This new and free to enter event, is going to be held in the car park of Wet n Wild in Sydney's West. With 12 food trucks pumping out some delicious tucker, and live music every night, it's a great way to feed the family on the cheap. There is even going to be a special kid zone where children can be entertained all night long.
As part of the awesome Riverside Theatres Spot On Children's Festival, Church Street Parramatta is coming alive on Saturday, with a host of family friendly activities and foodie delights. Kids can have their face painted and have a bounce on the jumping castle. Then they can participate in a circus workshop, check out some micro cars from the 1950s, and after all that chill out at story time with the Parramatta City Library. There will be heaps of different types of food available to munch on during the day too - Parramatta is of course the foodie capital of Sydney!
