Creston Museum hosting annual Kids’ Day

One of the Creston Museum’s most exciting days of the year returns Saturday, when families are invited to Kids’ Day!

“I would be lying if I said we didn’t enjoy the ice cream and messy activities ourselves, but, really, who says history has to be boring?” said museum program co-ordinator Alyssa Jackson. “So we have collected some of our favourite parts of what makes the valley what it is today, and packed it into a kid — and adult — friendly day of guided and independent games and activities.”

Visitors can pan for “gold”, pack fruit like a pro with their team, test their spelling prowess and become the spelling bee champion, build a miniature cabin, get messy at the barbershop with shaving cream — and so much more!

“Did I mention winning pennies to redeem for penny candy, and free ice cream and lemonade from 1-1:30 sponsored by Overwaitea?” asked Jackson. (“Parents get some too!”)

The event runs 10 a.m.-4 p.m. June 13.
