The 30th annual Children’s Fest hosted by Prince Rupert Special Events Society has a different look and format this year due to COVID-19.
The television broadcast talent show which is shaped in an ‘America’s Got Talent’ format with commentary and judge’s perspective will be aired on March 5 at 4:00 p.m., 5:00 p.m., and 6:00 p.m. as well as March 6 at 4:00 and 5:00 p.m.
The 30-minute show was put together from children’s and community video submissions from city organizations such as Friendship House, Prince Rupert Port Authority, and Ada Gee a regular participant at Children’s Fest with her ‘Swirl Art’, Alex Hogendoorn vice president of Special Events Society, said.
“Anyone who watches will have a laugh of joy,” Hogendoorn said. “Special Events has tried to make this feel as magical as possible.”
The annual event has traditionally taken place at the Prince Rupert Civic Centre with more than 1500 attendees at the 2020 function, but due to COVID restrictions has been scaled back to fit the current times.
“Special Events has tried to make this feel as magical as possible,” Hogendoorn said of the broadcast which will show on CityWest community T.V.
