4. South African Children’s Book Fair – Birchwood Hotel Boksburg

Look forward to interactive workshops, captivating storytelling, book launch and more. Treat yourself and your little ones to this inspirational event, filled with loads of entertaining books to immerse yourself in.

I always find these things useful as even with the SA book fair I went to last time they had very interactive workshops for the kids so I know this one will be a lot of fun. Unfortunately I can’t find a program on the site though. But if you are close to Boksburg then swing by!

Entrance fee is R50 for parents and young adults over 18 and R30 for pensioners, children get in for free.

5. Cars 3

Guess who is back? Lightning and Mater! Calling all moms with boys and anyone else who is obsessed with this franchise of movies and playing with the cars.  This time he is shouldered out of the race that he loves with fancy new cars. He turns to Cruz Ramirez, a new technician who has her own plans to get him back in the game.  Now showing at a cinema near you.
