Food, face painting some of Kin Fest highlights

Cowichan Green Community is excited to host Kin Fest, a free, all-inclusive, all-fun event inviting youth and their families in the Cowichan Region to come out and enjoy Kin Park in Duncan on Saturday, May 10, 12-4 p.m. The event will feature a range of entertaining and kid-friendly activities, including face painting, henna tattoos, cedar rose making workshops, gardening, live music, open mic, arts and crafts, sports, and a free barbecue (12-1 p.m.). As

well, Scouts Canada will make a special appearance to host a water balloon throwing competition.

The CGC is seeking feedback on how to make the park more fun, inviting and appealing to youth and their families. They plan to gather participants’ ideas on how to increase the availability of the park with a questionnaire and opportunities to speak to the event’s hosts regarding their experience at, and future expectations of, the park.

Attendees are asked to bring their own utensils to cut down on waste from the event. It’s also a good idea to bring a blanket or chair to sit on.
