“Fizzical Fizzicks” at Children’s Fest this weekend

2019 festival features an act that crosses circus, science concepts

The 28th annual Children’s Festival will feature a new show called “Fizzical Fizzicks” this Saturday, March 2 at the Jim Ciccone Civic Centre.

The interactive science show crosses circus skills with science concepts, and “wacky characters” Greg Tarlin and Kristi Heath.

“They are a team doing school tours in the Lower Mainland,” said Bev Killbery, one of the Prince Rupert Special Events directors. “It’s educational, but it’s, as they say it, the thrill of circus, the wonder of science, so there’s a little bit of physics and they kind of do a play on it by calling it ‘Fizzical Fizzicks.’”

That main show will run from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m.

The Charles Hayes band will also open the entertainment from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. and a small choir will do a couple songs later in the afternoon.

Admission is by donation and Killbery.
