New Event: Children’s Festival set for end of February in Lake Country

Lake Country Indoor Children’s Festival will be at the Lake Country Community Complex on Saturday, Feb. 27 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m

The first ever Lake Country Indoor Children’s Festival presented by TD Bank is being hosted at the Lake Country Community Complex on Saturday

Families in Lake Country have a brand new fun event to take part in, coming up at the end of this month.

The inaugural Lake Country Indoor Children’s Festival, presented by TD Bank, will be at the Lake Country Community Complex on Saturday, Feb. 27 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., with more activities at Creekside Theatre.

The event was organized by Lake Country’s new cultural development coordinator Ryan Donn, who said he wanted to focus on families for a new event in the district.

“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,” said 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 event will feature face painting, bouncy castle, caricatures by Marzio, a talent competition, Trixie the Clown, and entertainer Leif David in the Creekside Theatre.

The festival will also feature artisan booths, craft tables and a pop-up clothing store courtesy of Mamas for Mamas.

Multi-cultural activities like dancing, origami and henna will be on display.

Donn said it’s a true community effort as the Lake Country firefighters will provide a combat challenge, the Lake Country Museum is host an 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.

Admission to the Children’s Festival is by donation, with suggested donations of $2 child, $5 adult and $10 family.
