The request to council came from the Success by 6 organization, which is hosting a number of workshops today and Friday for parents and children. You can view some of the activities planned over the next couple of days from the information sheet below:
The organization will also be hosting a Children's Day at Mariner's Park on Saturday, with a range of events planned starting at 11 AM. As part of the celebration, the Proclamation will be read to the gathering at Mariner's following the opening ceremonies for the day.
Among some of the activities through the afternoon will include the Barefoot Caravan, The Kerplunks, some face painting, Craft tent, photo booth and entertainment. The artwork of local children will also be on display.
The activities for the day wrap up at 3 PM.
You can learn more about the Success by Six program here or through the Prince Rupert early years website.
