KELOWNA - A special Friday evening performance and dance will be one of the highlights of the 29th edition of the Interior Savings Fat Cat Children’s Festival in June.

Gustavo the Impossibilist will highlight the Friday variety show and dance party from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. on June 7, according to a Fat Cat Children's Festival media release.

He’s described as a bouffon clown from Calgary who asks the kids in the crowd: “Do you want to see something dangerous?”

Saturday fun starts at 10 a.m. with performances of “101” by Immigrant Lessons, “Plastique” by Puzzle Theatre and a musical set by The Oot n’ Oots on the main stage, which will be under a large, walled tent in the plaza of Waterfront Park.

There will be plenty of interactive activities with local groups and business including Silver Springs Concrete Services, Scouts Canada, Parks Canada, Yeti Farm Creative and Hyper Hippo.

There will be a parade on Saturday at 12:45 p.m., with the day wrapping up by 4 p.m.

Early bird tickets are available until May 15 and then ticket prices will go up. Tickets and event details are available through www.fatcatfestival.ca. Interior Savings members can pick up their tickets at their local branch starting April 30.

The Fat Cat Children’s Festival is taking a new artistic direction this year from Erin Scott and Karma Lacoff.

“We looked deep into the history of the organization and wanted to revitalize the event, bring in a variety of touring performers and celebrate the amazing talent who make the Okanagan home,” Lacoff said in the news release.

“We are taking a year off from the school day programming this year, addressing feedback from the community and working on its come back for the 30th anniversary event in 2020,” added Scott.
