Get your bathers and sun cream ready because the City of Swan is bringing the beach to Midland.
 
The Surf on Turf pop-up beach playground is sailing into Midland for one epic weekender in March.
 
You’ll be able to slip, slide and splash your way through the water playground, soak, up a packed program of family entertainment or just kick back at the Midland Gate Beach café where you can enjoy some gourmet food truck fare.
 
The free event will take place on the Corner of Cale Street and the Crescent in Midland on March 11 and 12, between 10am to 3pm.
 
It will feature entertainment from The Lulus, Bizircus, Pirateman, Perth Stilt walkers, The Mermaids and Riley Pearce and more, as well as sand sculptures, face painting and giant games.
 
City of Swan Mayor Mick Wainwright said the family friendly event would bring the only thing Midland doesn’t have to its shores – a beach.
 
“It will be fantastic to see part of Midland’s CBD transformed into a water themed pop up park and I hope to see all of the community down there and getting involved,” he said.
 
City of Swan Councillor Mark Elliott said the event, which is sponsored by Midland Gate, Community News and Advance Print, was a sign of things to come this summer.
 
“We are always proud to bring events like this to our local communities as they not only add vibrancy and atmosphere to the area, but allow our community members to see their usual surroundings in a very different light,”
