Fun in Store for North Coast youngsters at Saturday's Children's Festival

One of the annual signs for the North Coast that Spring is nearing is the arrival of the Prince Rupert Children's Festival a day long play date for the region's children that provides for activities and entertainment at the Jim Ciccone Civic Centre.

This years event, hosted by the Prince Rupert Special Events Society takes place this Saturday, with the 27th Annual edition of the popular Festival taking place from 10 AM to 4 PM.

A puppet making workshop makes for one of the highlights for this year, as Kellie Haines provides a glimpse into the craft for youngsters from the ages of six to 12, the workshop takes place from 4 to 5 and participants must pre-register. An adult must accompany the youngster to the workshop.

You can register for that event and find out what you may need to bring for the workshop by calling Special Events at 250-624-4678.

Ms. Haines will also be on the main stage at this years event, the ventriloquist will have two forty five minute shows on the day, with show times of 10:30 and 1:30.
