The city of Brisbane is absolutely brimming with family-friendly activities that will entertain adults and children alike. Get your family together and get ready for a July filled with festivities.
The following events are just some of the many taking place in Brisbane this July:
Snow, snow and more snow
This year children and adults will be spoilt in Brisbane by having the choice of two separate snow-based events. For adults and older children, Snow 4 Kids is creating a 30-metre toboggan ride in the City Botanic Gardens. It is on daily from the 27th June until the 12th July.
From 3rd July until 12th June, young children will be able to build their very own snowman and throw snowballs. The event – The Silly Snowman – will take place at the Courier Mail Piazza at South Bank.
Little Big Dash
There’s nothing better than combining heaps of fun with fitness, and it’s not just great for your little ones but also for yourself!
On the 26th July at the Seventh Brigade Park in Chermside, Little BIG DASH will take place. It is a 3km obstacle course that has 8 different stages to tackle. This is a fun and healthy event that will encourage team building and a whole lot of fun.
Disney On Ice
This is an event that never fails to get children excited. The Disney classic – Disney on Ice – returns to Australia from the 5th June to the 12th July. This dazzling show will take 4 of Disney’s favourite cartoons and make them come alive on ice. The theme this year is “Dare to Dream”, and you and your kids can look forward to watching two of Disney’s modern princess tales – The Princess and the Frog, and Tangled – combine with two of Disney’s oldest and most adored fairytales – Cinderella, and Snow White and the Seven Dwarves.
This is a must-see show for your children, and you might find that even parents become enchanted in the process.
The Very Hungry Caterpillar
One of the most renowned and popular of all children’s books, The Very Hungry Caterpillar, will come to the theatre from the 14th – 18th of July. This beloved story will come to life at the Le Boite’s Roundhouse Theatre, along with three other classic Eric Carle stories – ‘The Artist Who Painted a Blue Horse’, ‘Mister Sea Horse’ and ‘Very Lonely Firefly’.
The 26 Story Treehouse
This live show is the second installation of the exceedingly popular book series ‘The 13 Story Treehouse’.
