THUMB'S UP for the Vancouver Childrens Festival 2011

Blog post by Tina Winterlik © 2011


Well I wasn't sure what to expect, we had been to the Vancouver International Children's Festival 6 or 7x before and well we really liked it the way it was, but we are giving it the Big Thumbs Up.

We had a GREAT TIME. Check out the videos below. I did my best, I would have like to spent more time perfecting them but I wanted to share them today so I hope you'll give me a little grace.

We really had so much fun. We were really lucky we had good weather for most of it, it just rained for a little while and we happened to be in a tent making fairy clothes, and then we went and got a donut and coffee in the market. 

Truthfully I think this is a better concept now. It will be good for the market, and the $5 wrist band was totally in our budget, and we really got our money's worth.

Still by the time we bought donuts and a cool little "Loud Mouth " whistle it was close to $18 but not bad for such a FABULOUS DAY.

DON'T MISS OUT. Definitely go down to the Children's Festival. Remember it's only 9:30 to 2:30 so be sure to go early and take advantage of the different activities.

We hit the facepainting first, and there was quite a line up but it went quite fast and the girls did a AWESOME job.
