As every family knows, the summer holidays can be an expensive time. Schools are out, the kids are at a loose end and parents are tasked with keeping them entertained.
With that in mind, Jervis Shopping Centre, Dublin, is hosting a range of summer family event every Saturday in July and August and the best part is, they’re free.
Each Saturday from 1-5pm, the family can enjoy a different themed event while enjoying the walk-about characters throughout the centre, balloon modelling and a host of different elements each week.
