Children Festival Starts Tomorrow

Children's Festival Starts tomorrow. 
International Children's Festival
Oh we have a had some awesome times at the Children's Festival, but we've always found it expensive. It used to be $10 for each of us and then a popcorn/ cotton candy or a some type of treat and it was an easy $30. 

We've never been to any shows. A friend was telling me that when it first started it was so different, all open and was so much cheaper. I don't know about this but I did hear that Raffi pulled out when the corporations started to back it, I don't know if that's true, it's just what I heard. 

What I do know is they moved it this year. To Granville Market- I was really upset when I heard this, and well from the sounds of it, it's definitely not going to be the same. 

Word is that if it doesn't do well, that's it, it's over, because the funding has be cut way back and they have a deficit, so that really sucks.

Will we have fun? I don't know, but we will find out and at $5 for each of us, that's alot easier to swallow. So we will let you all know how it goes.  Check out the website for more info.
