If your kids are into skateboarding they will be over the moon with the House of Vans event this Saturday. You might like to know that aside from the ramps, there is art and music to enjoy as well! Some other sporty events are a karting competition or a family hike at the Octagon. Movie lovers will enjoy the highly rated local children's film Patintero or the very funny Storks. Star Wars fans should head to Fully Booked for a fun filled Saturday while the book worms will want to know that Kidzania has a book fair going on. Artsy types should be joining the last Ink Fest event or learn how to make clay sculptures, sand art or their own monster stuffed toys! For the older kids we found a strategic game and a virtual reality challenge. There are Lego events and the little ones can cuddle with My Little Pony. And there is even more! Enjoy your weekend!

MOVIE | Patintero

Patintero Manila For Kids
Go see this local children's movie! The film centers on Meng Francisco (Nafa-Hilario Cruz), a 10-year old who loves one thing: Patintero. The only hitch is that she’s terrible at it and her reputation has earned her the title of the neighborhood “patalo” (loser). But in the continuing struggle against the high school team that has one-sidedly claimed the territory of the local sari-sari store, Meng forms an unlikely team of fellow losers to finally challenge these high schoolers in the game of their lives.In this heroic effort to win back what was unfairly taken from her and her friends, Meng will train, bleed, and do almost anything to fight for what she wants: a good game of Patintero on the streets. And what she does for it will be the stuff of legend.
