KidsFest Big Success
If results of the raid on the hot dog supply are anything to go by, the mid-summer KidsFest event in Vankleek Hill proved a total success.
“I think it surpassed our expectation for numbers,” said Lisa Burroughs, Champlain Township parks and recreation director. “We had bought 500 hot dogs and we ran out.”
Besides enjoying the free hot dogs, children spent the morning and afternoon at Mill Street Park bounding up and down in the inflatable bounce castles, getting their faces painted, dressing up in costumes for photo shoots, checking out the critters at the Little Ray’s Reptile Zoo interpretive show, running around the splash pad, and playing with their friends on the outdoor gym equipment.
