Organizer Dawn Stevens describes the first Children’s Expo as a combination of a carnival and craft fair, with handmade crafts, vendors, and a variety of children’s activities including a bounce castle, live entertainment, and sing-a-long.
Stevens, recreation co-ordinator at the Comox Community Centre, is using her background in children programming to create the Expo this Saturday.
There will also be an opportunity to purchase Christmas/fun photos by Michelle Williams Photography, along with a visit from the Comox RCMP and Comox firefighters.
Stevens said she is hoping to make the expo at the community centre an annual event.
Tickets are available in advance for $3 a person, and can be purchased at the Comox Community Centre, all three Planet Kids locations and Quality Foods in Comox. Tickets cost $4 at the door.
The Children’s Expo is scheduled from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. For more information, call 250-339-2255.
