Sunny Kids Expo

The Sunny Coast Kids Family Expo is preparing to inspire local families again this year as it returns to Council’s Lake Kawana Community Centre on Saturday, September 12 from 9am to 3pm.

Last year the event proved to be extremely popular with families flocking to enjoy a day of activities, information and entertainment.

Event organisers, Sunny Coast Kids, are excited to announce that the Expo has been moved to a Saturday this year – with the aim of making it more accessible for the majority of working families.

The Hon. Mal Brough MP, Federal Member for Fisher said the Sunny Coast Kids Family Expo is a great event that brings together families, local businesses and community groups in one place.
“Last year’s event was a fantastic success and I can see the 2015 event being bigger and better than ever,” he said.

The expo floor will be abuzz throughout the day with information, samples and activities, as exhibitors showcase products and services available to parents. Children will also be kept busy and entertained with free activities and demonstrations, both indoors and outdoors.

Sunny Coast Kids Family Expo organiser Lara Hodgson said the feedback received from last year’s expo has been overwhelmingly positive from both exhibitors and attendees.

“We are thrilled to have already received a fantastic line-up of exhibitors and our expectation is that the expo will attract participation and attendance from families far and wide this year,” she said.

“Our objective is to see families walking away inspired and informed about what our local community has on offer to help make family life easier, happier and healthier.”

Highlights at the Family Expo will include: health and safety, nutrition and wellness, sport and fitness, education and childminding, lifestyle and finance, entertainment and tourism, community service providers, demonstrations, performances, keynote speakers and food and beverage vendors.

Entry to the Expo is $5 for adults and kids are free. For more information, please visit
