Biggest East Cape family expo moves venue

THE Kids & Baby Expo, the biggest family expo in the Eastern Cape, is back – celebrating this year at a brand new venue at the Boardwalk’s exhibition level.

The expo, now six years old and a firm favourite on the third term school holiday calendar, will run from Friday October 2 to Sunday October 4. It’s again set to deliver a great weekend of indoor entertainment and fun for the whole family.

Event director Linda Harwood said she was thrilled that the event would dovetail with the 15th birthday celebrations of the Boardwalk Casino and Entertainment World.

“This promises to be a carnival weekend for the whole family with special giveaways and special offers from the centre to celebrate,” she said. There will also be exhibitor competitions and product sampling opportunities, she said.

Once again, parents will be able to grab a bite and relax or browse to their hearts content as there will be lots of fun and action to keep the kids busy.

The expo will include indoor entertainment and fun; family wellness; development and education; furniture and decor; clothing and sport; creativity and crafts; photography and home electronics; technology; travel and leisure; and food and drink.

Nearly 100 exhibitors will be offering products and services to the family market, including parents, expectant parents and teachers, with an accent on families with children up to the age of 12.

The expo will be held in the spacious Boardwalk exhibition level, which offers a secure and weather-proof environment including a comfortable baby changing area and private feeding area for new moms.

Entrance will be R35 for adults and R20 for kids and tickets will be sold at the entrance to the expo on the weekend.
