Peek At The Week | October 13-19
We found 26 things to do in Manila with kids this week!Let's start by congratulating Enchanted Kingdom with their 21st anniversary! They have opened a new Ghostbusters attraction you really must see. There's a few other spooky things going on, like a murder mystery at the Ayala Museum and a sleep over at the Mind Museum. If you would rather keep it light, go build Lego, visit the Lopez Museum for free or make some 3-D art at Molito. Sporty families will want to try out flowboarding or take the kids for a family fun run and many other sports activities at UP Academic Oval! Older kids might want to learn from the Masters and have a workshop from a legendary screenwriter or from Disney's first Asian animator. And there is more...Happy weekend everyone!
