Wondering what to do with yourself and your family this weekend? During the weekend of the 8th and 9th October, Arnotts will see its Childrenswear Department transformed into a festival of fun for the annual Arnotts Children’s Fashion Weekend.

With fashion shows, magic shows, fairy door workshops and other fun events, there are plenty of things for the whole family to enjoy. Plus, with two exciting themes over the weekend, children can attend in full fancy dress. Saturday will feature a special Princess and Superhero theme while Sunday will be a Fairy theme.

The highlight of the weekend is the ‘kids only’ fashion shows: four high energy fashion shows will take place on Saturday, 8th October at 10.30 am, 12.30pm2pm and 4pm, and before each show, guests will enjoy some performances from the talented kids at the Leah Moran Stage School.

Reuben the kids entertainer will be in store to host the fashion shows throughout the day on Saturday and doing some special magic tricks between shows, while children will get the chance to meet and greet Spider Man, get their face painted by Elsa or even get a photo from Mr Tayto. Even Flick and Flack from Swatch will be hosting ‘Teach the Time’ workshops during the day on Saturday, while Hughie Glynn, the celebrity caricaturist will also be instore offering free family portraits.

Throughout the whole weekend, The Irish Fairy Doors Company will be doing some very special engraving on their fairy doors and kids will also have the chance to paint their very own fairy door and on Sunday, kids will even have the change to meet real life fairies with The Irish Fairy Doors Company.

Reuben the kids entertainer will be back once again on Sunday to host some exciting magic shows along with Flick and Flack, and there will be kids karaoke and face painting taking place throughout the afternoon. And if you need a break after all that excitement, you can take your kid to chill out at the Gant Never Stop Learning area, where kids can take a time out and read books.
