We've put together some fun things to do with the whole family this Easter holiday and the great part is that you can do some of these things outside of the holiday too. 

Now, if we're honest, we know that kids rule the weekends and where you go is determined a lot by them. 

So, here are some things to do this weekend that are kid-friendly. 

The Easter India Shopping Festival

You can bring your whole family to the Easter India Shopping Festival at the Old Durban Drive-In located on Sylvester Ntuli Road. 

The festival not only has great shopping opportunities, but the Chetty's Fun Fair is also on the grounds. 

Sun-Thursday: 11am to 9pm 

Friday and Saturday: 11am to 10pm

Fridays, Saturdays, Sunday, and Public Holidays: R20 entry fee

Inchanga Station Craft Market

There will be an Easter Market happening at the Inchanga Station during Easter Weekend, in particular the 30th and 31st of March. 

The Easter Bunny will be onboard the Vintage Steam Train and tickets for the train ride can be purchased online:

They have asked that people carry cash as not all stall holders at the market have card facilities.
