Local Dandelion Festival is a Hit with The Kids {Event}

Dandelion Festival Logo For the past three years, The Zoo has attended The Dandelion Festival. Held on the last weekend in May, it's North Grenville's premiere festival showcasing our rich artistic and musical talent.

A favourite with our family is always the Farmers Market, Big Sky Ranch (a local animal shelter), Volunteer Fire Department, storytelling at the library and buskers in the streets.

This year, the weather was cool and overcast but it didn't dampen our spirits!

Dandelion Festival Collage The Kids got more involved this year and added the following activities to their favourite list; colouring, live music, dog agility exercises, playing in the bouncy castle and sliding down the 3,499,456 foot giant air slide. I might be exaggerating slightly on the height dimensions

I didn't realize how high it was until Artemis started climbing and was this little speck. By that point, it was too late to get her and there was only one way down. I probably wouldn't have agreed to it but Max had already gone (and survived).

The Kids each received a fireman's hat to take home and I've had to peel it off their heads before they go to bed.

Speaking of which, I've started a new bedtime routine called "What was your favourite part of the day". You may recognize it from Kids Say the Darndest Things.

On the eve of the festival, Max told me that his favourite part of the day was petting the Camel, Horse and Mountain Goat. Translation: Llama, Pony and Goat. Life is more exciting when you're a child.

All in all, a very impressive event for a town of only 4,000 people (12,000 in the county).

Share all the fun of the Dandelion Festival!
