The annual, volunteer-run Canada Day Children’s Festival is getting ready to roll from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Wednesday, July 1.

This popular, free event features games, wagon rides, bouncy houses and entertainment with the aboriginal storytelling of Kenthen Thomas, clown and magician Uncle Chris and Kiki the Eco Elf.

Local businesses have generously donated goods for a silent auction and the children’s festival will benefit from donated foods to be sold by a variety of food vendors – pizza, ice cream, milk, coffee and juice. Other vendors will sell hotdogs, bannock and cold treats.

While several people have agreed to help with set up, organizers still need volunteers to help out during the festival and for tear-down at 3 p.m.

If you can help, contact Karen or Kari at volunteer@sachildrensfest.com.
