Red Deer’s children’s festival to run this month with musicians, comedians, crafts and games

The family-fun event is on May 31 and June 1 in Rotary Recreation Park

Animal expert Safari Jeff, musician Smilin’ Rylan and many other acts will entertain at the Central Alberta Children’s Festival in Red Deer at the end of the month.

The 13th annual festival, presented by Family Services of Central Alberta, will be held on Friday and Saturday, May 31 and June 1, at Rotary Recreation Park.

Organizers say their mission is to strengthen relationships by providing a fun family day out: “Come play at the 2019 Central Alberta Children’s Festival to celebrate the wonder of childhood from ages 0 to 99! We want to remind everyone to have fun and never grow up!”

They are dedicated to “creating memories … and celebrating the kid in all of us.”

This year could be the biggest festival yet, with more than 7,000 participants, including school groups, expected to attend.

With support from ParticipACTION and various community partners, the festival will provide affordable, culturally diverse and exciting entertainment and interactive fun.

Kids can engage in creative learning and imaginative play through jumbo-sized games, inflatables and face painting, as well as sports, crafts, dance and music.

The live shows will also feature the comedy-music trio Hoja, magician Kyle Key, The Joe Show of illusion and ventriloquism, and more great acts.

Admission is $6 daily, per person, or $20 for a family of four, with weekend family passes available for $30. Tickets can be purchased at the gate.

Admission includes access to all festivities, along with a free family barbecue night on May 31, and a Ricky’s pancake breakfast on June 1.
