Melbourne International Motor Show Family Day will be held on Saturday March 7th, giving parents a chance to enjoy the show while the kids are kept entertained.

The Wiggles and Dorothy the Dinosaur will be on hand at the Volkswagen stand at 11am, 1pm and 3pm with face painting and a range of other kid orientated activities to be held throughout the day.

Dora the Explorer will be another highlight of the day, cruising the Melbourne Exhibition Centre from 1 pm to 4 pm to meet children throughout the Show.

Fairies, magicians and magic clowns will also be roving the hall - and kids will also be able to get their face painted or have a balloon artist make them their own special balloon creations.

For the parents there will be the latest supercars, green cars, family cars and concept cars from around the world, with many making their first Australian appearance at the Show.

To celebrate the shows 75th year, a Heritage Tribute display will feature some rare stars of previous shows, in addition to the usual feast of cars and memorabilia in the Shannons Motor show Auction display on the concourse.

Even better, a family pass is just $45 for two adults and up to three kids, and kids under five are free for the entire show.

Melbourne International Motor Show runs from 27 February to 9 March at the Melbourne Exhibition Centre.
