Mama Bear’s Picnic fun for the whole family at Anderton Gardens in the Comox Valley

Hey Comox Valley families! If you go down in the woods… make sure it’s on Aug. 17 to the Gardens on Anderton where you and your kids are sure of a big surprise.

The Gardens on Anderton are holding a Mama Bear’s Picnic on that day, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., and it’s free.

You can meet the beautifully carved Mama Bear and her two baby cubs, and bring your favourite teddy bear or stuffies and enjoy the Teddy Tumble. Bring your picnic and listen to Jenn Forsland, who will be leading a sing-along at noon.

There will also be ladybug painting; learning about bees and tasting real local honey; making fairy houses to take home; and making edible critters to eat. There will also be a games area for some fun and games.

A photo booth and dress up tent will add to the fun, and the concession will have all items at just 50 cents each.

Come and see the beautiful gardens and enjoy an exciting family day.

The Gardens on Anderton are located behind Anderton Nursery at 2012 Anderton Rd. in Comox. If you’re not sure of the location, refer to Google Maps. Please bring enough water and your own food, and blankets to sit on if you need them.
