Children’s Festival

We went to the Children’s Festival in Penticton last week and we had a lot of fun! There were many things to do and see. The best part of the festival for us was seeing Erth’s Dinosaur show. We got to touch the dinosaurs. They weren’t real dinosaurs of course but they looked real! They were really puppets. They felt like rough, cold rubber. The lady presenting the show was very funny. She has a really great job. She’s from Australia and travels the world teaching kids about dinosaurs. It was really funny when she would bring kids up on stage to be part of the show. I (Emmitt) would have liked to have been picked but even though I wasn’t it was still a good show. One thing she said to us that made us laugh was to not go home and start digging our back yard up to look for dinosaur bones. That would be fun, but I don’t think Mom would appreciate that! It was a really fun show and we are glad that we got to see it. The climbing wall was really cool too and there were also a lot of different craft projects and displays in the other tents. The weather was really nice and we had a picnic lunch and Dipping Dots for dessert. Just before leaving we also bought some cotton candy. It was a really fun day. Thank you for inviting us and we are looking forward to going again next year.
Have a great summer!
