Families are invited to attend a youth-friendly event at Nose Creek Park on May 26 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The full-day event, free for all Airdrie and area residents, is being organized by the Airdrie Children’s Festival Society (ACFS), a new organization made up of local parents dedicated to enriching the lives of children and celebrating cultural differences.
The inaugural event will feature a Children’s Village play area, children’s entertainment and inspiration stations, created to inspire kids in learning activities with the goal of exposing them to future career opportunities.
Youth can also take part in free workshops located around the city, such as cooking, pottery, art, writing and computer coding.
The day will end with a free outdoor family movie.
“Our goal is to inspire young people to become more curious and creative through learning and fun,” says Pete Lewis, ACFS chair, noting the event is geared toward both children and teens.
We want young people to not only have fun, but also to see opportunities for their futures.
“We want them to know they can aspire to be biologists, aircraft technicians, farmers or any other career they choose.”
