Family friendly entertainment on a Friday evening?

Hi wondering about family friendly shows or entertainment have an 11 year old and 2 year old. Wouldn't mind main strip or matagorda which ever is best really. Somewhere where we could sit out and have a few drinks while kids are entertained would be great

Hi Caroline H...I presume it is night entertainment and that you are staying in the Matagorda area. Well the Matagorda Centro has limited live entertainment. Bars like The Late Late Show upstairs have entertainment most nights followed by Karaoke (starts around 11.30) with seating outside. The Auld Triangle has entertainment and gets fairly packed inside but ample seating outside. Depending on when you are travelling, in can become quite chilly in the Autumn/Winter months. No real children's shows around, just singing, dancing and fun. The Karaoke sessions are often gas and i have seen many children up singing. The Fiddlers Green near the Los Pocillos roundabout may be open too. Generally all entertainment starts from around 10pm.

Fluffy toy pigs that are wound up & race down a track, if you pick to race a pig you get to name it & other people bet on it, it gets very competitive but in a fun way 😂

Hi, go to the Vik San Antonio hotel you can join in the entertainment which has a children's disco, magic shows ect. They don't mind as long as you buy drinks, I think the disco is at 8.,30 or nine. Go to reception and they have an entertainments board just beyond there which gives you the acts and the times. The hotel is at the start of the strip not far from your place.
