Where can you find princesses, trains and alpacas in the same place? The YMCA of Greater Halifax/Dartmouth joined Hatfield Farms and Little Princess Parties Halifax, along with some other friends from the Spring Garden Area Business Association, at the 6th Annual Children’s Festival on Sunday, August 12th in Victoria Park for a few hours of fun under the sun.

This event was a great opportunity to connect with our community, share updates about our new John W. Lindsay YMCA and our current programming – like how the YMCA Community Action Network (YCAN) is responding to needs in our communities – and to have fun! Over 2,500 children and families attended and visited the YMCA table to shoot (mini) hoops, and get some exercise while learning new ‘circus yoga’ poses and dance moves with a Zumba demonstration lead by Michelle Ryder. There were also some great musical performances, a bounce castle, petting zoo and a ride-along train!

The YMCA of Greater Halifax/Dartmouth would like to thank the Spring Garden Area Business Association and all of the volunteers who donated their time to make this event possible. We can’t wait to see everyone again next year.
