The first ever Lake Country Indoor Children’s Festival presented by TD Bank is being hosted at the Lake Country Community Complex on Saturday, Feb. 27 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Complete with face painting, bouncy castle, caricatures by Marzio, a talent competition, Trixie the Clown, and entertainer Leif David in the Creekside Theatre; artisan booths, craft tables and a pop-up clothing store courtesy of Mamas for Mamas; plus multi-cultural activities like dancing, origami and henna to mention a few from the Intercultural Society of the Central Okanagan (ISCO), there will be something for everyone in the family.
“There are so many families in Lake Country and neighbouring Kelowna and Vernon, that organizing a Children’s Festival at our terrific Community Complex was at the top of my list of priority activities to make happen in 2016,” says Cultural Development Coordinator Ryan Donn. “As a parent myself, I’m always attentive to events for families that offer interactive fun and learning experiences for a variety of ages. Having TD Bank as the title sponsor is a really good fit because they have a very community-minded approach to business and a local presence on Lake Country’s Main Street.”
The whole community is getting involved: the Lake Country firefighters are providing a Combat Challenge, the Lake Country Museum is doing a historical photo booth and the Lake Country Art Gallery will have various art activities for kids to participate in. Lake Country Health Planning Society will have a building blocks area and Wentworth Music is hosting a drum booth for young musicians to check out.
Admission to the Children’s Festival is by donation, with suggested donations as follows: $2 child | $5 adult | $10 family.
Mark your calendar for Saturday, February 27th and bring the whole family.
