With the summer holidays in full swing, as a parent you might be running out of things to keep the kids occupied. Fear not, because Cockburn Gateway’s Summer Festival is serving up all the fun you and the kids will love. Running from January 10 – 23, this activity-filled festival has something for the whole family.

One of the main attractions of the Summer Festival is the outdoor cinema popping up in the shopping centre’s piazza. With daily screenings at 7pm, kick back on a beanbag and catch Disney classics such as Alice in Wonderland, Enchanted, and more. Tickets for the outdoor cinema twilight sessions are $5 per person or $15 for a family and can be purchased here. All the proceeds from the cinema ticket sales will also be donated to Cockburn Toy Library.

But before you get comfortable at the outdoor cinema, you can spend the day checking out all the activities in the Kids Arcade, open from 10am – 2pm on from Monday until Saturday, and 11am – 3pm on Sundays. In terms of the activities on offer, think basketball, pace painting, giant grass games, bowling, hook-a-duck, as well as local buskers that the parents can enjoy while the little ones are off playing.

In addition to all the fun, there will also be special dining offers that you enjoy from Grill’d, San Churro, and more. To check out the full program, click here.
