The Prince Rupert community was out in full force for the 25th annual Prince Rupert Children’s Festival, March 5.
Smiles were everywhere at this year’s festival and M’akola and Muks-Kum-Ol Housing Society staff stepped up to celebrate the children and host a booth.
The Jim Ciccone Civic Centre was packed with nearly every child and their parents and grandparents in the city. The children travelled booth to booth enjoying all of the fun activities available including face painting, rock climbing and everything in between.
“Spending time in the Community with the families at this year’s Prince Rupert Children’s Festival was the highlight of my week,” said M’akola CEO Kevin Albers. “ It’s always nice to see the happiness that these kinds of events bring to children and their families.”
The M’akola and Muks-Kum-Ol housing staff hosted the Cake Walk booth and it was a real hit. The activity was so popular a new cake walk was hosted every 10 minutes from 11-4pm.
“Thanks to all our Prince Rupert team coming out and connecting with all the family members M’akola and Muks-Kum-Ol serves,” said M’akola Chief Operating Officer, Jennifer Fox. “It was a great day for our Prince Rupert team and residents to come together and enjoy the Children’s Festival together.”
