It is hard to believe it is that time of the year once again! In St. Albert the last week of May always means the annual International Children’s Festival is up and running in the downtown core.
This year the festival runs from Tuesday May 26, 2015 until Saturday May 30, 2015.
The museum is always proud to be involved in this event in our community. This year our tent is called Laugh In: ’60’s Youth Pop Culture and it is located along the Global Canadian Heritage Trail.
I dropped by this morning to see how things were going and found one of our programmers, Roy, looking “very 60’s” as he prepared to welcome visitors to the tent for school programs.
Students and visitors to the tent are learning about the past through photos and stories about our community in the 60’s and early 70’s and everyone gets the chance to tie dye a headband to take home with them as well.
The photo booth proved to be a lot of fun too–a place to dress up and take a groovy photo with your family or friends. If you are coming to the festival this year be sure to drop by our tent and and say hello!
