“It’s for the community to come together and enjoy the magic and wonder that childhood brings to the community,” Kate Toye said, regional and aboriginal engagement coordinator.

Performers Barefoot Caravan and The Kerplunks are providing free entertainment with the day also welcoming kids to take the stage, Toye said.

Also being featured is a craft tent, photography booth, and face painters Rachel and Rachael.

“In previous years we didn’t do the workshops but we are trying to add something every year. I hope we see everyone come out,” Toye said.
