THE school holidays are almost over and parents across the region are probably hiring babysitters by the dozens this weekend to have a break from their beloved cherubs.

Filmgoers in Rockhampton will unite with audiences in more than 250 cities spanning six continents to view and judge the work of the next generation of filmmakers from around the world when the 17th Annual Manhattan Short Film Festival screens in Rockhampton.

Rocky Flix will host the festival at the Walter Reid Cultural Centre tonight

Tomorrow, grab your smart phone and head to a local Instameet location for the biggest state-wide Instameet to promote what is great about Queensland. Read more here: Instameet

You could dust off your runners and start practising your finish-line pose, the annual Capricorn Coast Running Festival is almost here.

Runners and walker from across the region will pound the pavement on the Capricorn Coast this Sunday in aid of the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation as the annual CQPhysio Group Capricorn Coast Running Festival gets under way.
