Special focus on health, wellness for families

THE PE Express First Choice Kids & Baby Expo is back and will be held in the upcoming school holidays.

Celebrating its ninth year, the expo will take place at the Boardwalk’s exhibition level on Friday, October 5, and Saturday, October 6, from 09:00 to 18:00 and from Sunday, October 7, from 09:00 to 17:00.

Kids will take centre stage again this year as budding little chefs will once again have the opportunity to put their smoothie making skills to the test for the First Choice Smoothie competition. Contestants will be selected from the audience each day to make their smoothie to be judged by the Boardwalk’s chefs, and winners stand to win amazing prizes! The first 500 visitors will receive a free Milki and kids can meet Milki Moo, their friendly mascot.
