Peek At The Week | October 6-12
by: Manila For Kids
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!
