Paradise Resort is supporting Kids Weekend, a brand new family initiative by the Surfers Paradise Alliance to be held Saturday 6th and Sunday 7th October, 2012 on the redeveloped Surfers Paradise foreshore.

Officially the naming rights sponsor, Paradise Resort will play a major part in promoting Surfers Paradise as a family destination through this exciting two-day, kid-friendly event.

Resort General Manager, David Brook, said the event was the perfect way for the destination to show its return to family-focused activities and was a natural fit with the Resort.

"Our whole business is geared toward families and making their stay on the Gold Coast the most enjoyable and economical experience possible," he said.

"The Kids Weekend, with its free activities, is an extension of this philosophy but one that is rolled out over the entire precinct and something we are pleased to be a major part of."

The two day carnival event is loaded with fun things for kids to do and see including live entertainment, art activities, a full program of beach-based fun and night-time beach cinemas and fireworks.

The redeveloped Surfers Paradise Foreshore is the Kids Weekend hub, with music and entertainment on stage and all the hands-on activities taking place down by the beach.

Dorothy the Dinosaur and her musical friends headline the live program with free Saturday and Sunday shows on the Kids Weekend beach stage alongside Captain Feathersword and a full program of kids' entertainers.

"The event will draw a number of families from all over during this peak school holiday period and we are excited to host them at the Resort which is within walking distance of all the Kids Weekend activities," said Mr Brook.

As part of its commitment, the Resort will also perform character shows daily with Captain, Cleopatra and Astro on the Main Stage on Surfers Paradise Beach and host mini chef's cupcake workshops, twice daily.

"It's about engaging and involving children and creating a memorable family event for the destination."

"Over the weekend our guests will be able to enjoy the best of both worlds in entertainment and family friendly activities; right outside their hotel room door and on the foreshore just a short stroll away."

Packages over that weekend start from just $153 per night for 2Adults and up to 2Children (0-12years) and include one session in the fully supervised Zone 4 Kids Club per child per day plus unlimited use of the Zone 4 Kids Water Park.+nbsp; Other room types available for an additional fee.
