Festival in full swing!

May 31, 2012

Light drizzle hasn’t dampened the spirits of our young Festival-goers!

Whether it’s the circus style antics of ZooZoo, a mesmerizing Italian elephant, a full tent of facepainters, pyjama night or a soundscape where kids can bash away to their hearts content, the kids
are happy and so are we! 

 

A few comments from our fans

 

Nine-year-old girl’s response to Kutz and Dawgs: “It was amazing, I loved it, I loved the costumes, dancing and story.” 

 

MumOfThreeBC on Twitter: “I bet my son had a blast with his class today at the @vicf …”

 

GwenFloyd: “@vicf it was the best! Both boys really enjoyed it!”

 

Teacher at St. Mary’s Elementary regarding Élage Diouf: “He has all the kids on their feet and on stage. They LOVED IT! Everyone should see it! This Festival is incredible; you don’t get this
anywhere else.”

 

Seven-year-old’s comment on Under the Stars … “I LOVED it!”

 

Youth blogger’s thoughts on ZooZoo: “… like watching Sunday morning cartoons: humourous and super duper high energy, but in this case, live!”

 

Mom blogger with young son re: Twist and Toddle in the Celebration Zone: “… full of trains, puzzles, little animals, costumes, tents, tunnels, a water table with boats & buckets, as well as a
baby zone for the really tiny ones. Sprout didn’t want to leave!”
