Let’s not forget the live music. This year’s entertainment will be provided by the world-famous Fred Penner, known to young and old as one of the best children’s entertainers anywhere. And for those who want a little more we have Lisa Brokop, Canadian music award winner and three time winner of the independent female artist of the year. There will also be an open mike for local entertainment.
As in past years, we will be having our craft challenges. A few we introduced last year are back. The brown bag challenge (please pre-register so we can get the bag to you) Linda 559-8975 and the wheelbarrow challenge (grow a garden in a wheel barrow). Don’t forget about the veggie sculptures, floral arrangement, and themed decorated cake.
The Craft Challenge this year is to make a bug, Yes, a bug. You can make your bug out of anything you want, only rule is you must write a short story to go along with your bug. It could be about how your bug came to be or your bug’s life.
