We are pleased to announce that although the AGM didn't have a great turnout, the follow up General meeting two weeks later did.
The committee is happy to annouce the 2018 KidFest event will take place Sunday, August 12 from 10-3pm!
Special thanks to those community members who showed interest in joining the committee and took on a vacant position. We still have two important roles to fill: Chair and Site Coordinator. If you know someone or are interested yourself please get in contact with us.
Now the fun part begins...
It's that time of year again where planning for this year's event has begun!
We are excited to celebrate our 26th anniversary of KidFest being at the Parksville Community Park and have some exciting new ideas to share. This year is sure to be fun for families, allowing them to learn new skills, participate in a new club, meet some of our local businesses and organizations, plus best of all...
Our committee is still short a few people to help us in the role of Stage Entertainment Coordinator, Food Vendor Coordinator and Sponsorship Coordinator. If you or someone you know may be interested and wish to learn more please contact us.
If you'd like to be involved in this year's event as a food vendor, community booth, entertainer, sponsor we'd be more than happy to send you more information.
Unfortunately KidFest is not pet friendly. There are large crowds of people, with the majority of them being young children. It may seem obvious that pets shouldn't be left in cars, even for short periods of time yet the SPCA and RCMP are still called out to rescue pets from vehicles.
Many of the activities and entertainment will involve children and their families to be sitting on the ground where it is easy for leashes and pets to cause preventable circumstances. (ie: tripping hazards, leashes tangled, food scavenging, etc.)
Please plan ahead and leave your pets at home where you can be assured they will be cool and comfortable. KidFest and your pets thank you for your cooperation.
