11 Family-Friendly Activities Happening in August And September 2019


“Mummy, what are we doing this weekend?”

“I don’t want to go to the playground again!” 

Parents, we are all too familiar with our kid’s complaints. We have to constantly rack our brains to come up with family-friendly activities and events to check out during the weekends and school holidays. And if you do find an activity, there is a hazard in that –  repeat it too many times, and it gets boring. Thankfully for us, the fun never ends in a city like ours. There is always something to do for the whole family.

So to keep you stress-free, we have collated a list of must-see and must do family-friendly activities and events this August and September.
