The Whistler Children's Festival is Back!

What's on your Summer to- do list? Here in YVR we get rewarded for 9 months of grey & rain with 3 months of beautiful Summers full of heat & sunshine. Growing up I loved going on mini road trips with my family, hanging out at the beach, and spending as much time outside as I could. Another amazing thing about living on the west coast is the variety of amazing places we can visit simply by hopping in the car & driving for a few hours: the Okanagan, Tofino, and Whistler just to name a few.

If you're wanting to do something close to home but still get away for a few days, Whistler is always a great option, even without the snow. For a family- friendly weekend event or getaway, make sure you check out the Whistler Children's Festival this July 10th- 12th. Taking place at the Whistler Olympic Plaza right in the heart of the Whistler Village, The Whistler Children's Festival is the longest running festival in the area and the only one organized just for kids. With a variety of things to do including live performances, workshops, crafts, and free activities, there will be something fun for everyone in the family to enjoy- even the grown ups!

Here's just a few of the things you can look forward to:

Bear Paw Print T- Shirt Workshop (kids 6+)

Backyard Birdhouse Workshop (kids 8+)

Bubblemania (what kid doesn't love bubbles???)

Circus Fungus (Friday Night Dance Party, featuring stilt walkers, fire dancers, puppeteers & more)

Bobs and Lolo (a fave with the littles!)

Laughing Out Loud with Kellie & Co (ventriloquist/ comedy show that looks adorable)
