With Christmas around the corner, I would like to take a moment to let residents know about a fun opportunity for children’s entertainment in the new year.

Kidsfest is Ottawa’s biggest kid’s exhibition and it is coming to the EY centre April 1st and 2nd.

All weekend, families can enjoy award winning performers on the main stage, participate in a variety of family-friendly activities, and discover unique items to purchase.

Attendees can use robotics to build objects, play instruments, climb on a playground, perform martial arts, drink tea with a princess, play a mini game of soccer, pet an animal, ride a bicycle, paint a picture, jump on a bouncy castle, and more.

As well, Junior Junos will be hosting a live musical concert to interlay with the Junos happening at the Canadian Tire Centre the evening of April 1st. Nominees for Children’s Album of the Year will be in attendance to entertain so don’t let your little ones miss out.
