It's that time of year again...

The Fisher's Ghost Festival has kicked off and there's lots happening this weekend with the street parade, family fun festival and Fisher's Gig on Saturday, and Fisher's Kids on Sunday at Campbelltown Arts Centre. As part of Fisher's Gig, there'll be fireworks going off at 9pm on Saturday so if you're near Bradbury Oval, a) head outside for a look and b) make sure your pets are locked away safe.

If you feel like heading out of Campbelltown for some tranquility, Bingara Gorge at Wilton are running some free events including a yoga class and story time plus a twilight cinema on Saturday. On Sunday they've got kids gardening and a science show. For more info, check out the website.

For something cultural, the 141st Scottish Highland Gathering is being held at the Castle Hill showground. This is a family event with dancing, bagpipes, haggis hurling (what the?), a vintage car display plus food and drink stalls. For more info, check out the Facebook page.

With so much happening in the Macarthur area and surrounds this weekend - and predicted good weather - it's going to be hard to make a choice. Where are you planning to be?

Little Kids Zone

Club Playdays at Minto has reopened as Macarthur Indoor Sports Arena as Little Kids Zone indoor play centre. It features the same set up and equipment as Playdays with a slightly different menu.

The centre is great for children aged 2-5. There's lots of room for them to run around, jump, ride and pretend play. The play area takes up a couple of fully shaded netball courts and all areas are easily overlooked by the tables in the cafe section where you can get drinks, snacks and light meals.

Little Kids Zone is open from 9:30 to 2:30 Monday to Friday. I can't find a website for them but they have a Facebook fan page. Prices are around $7 entry per child.
