Hi Everyone!

We're running a new contest starting today & ending this THURSDAY JUNE 25th at 5pm.

Well here's something that will kick the KW area into High Gear for our "Big Kids"

You've saw it advertised in the blast, but now we have the info & a TICKET GIVEAWAY!

Are your kids too old to see THE BACKYARDIGANS, but too young to see ALEXIS ON FIRE? Do they want a little independence, but under your watchful eye?


It's a Rock Concert for KIDS!
It's being held at Fed Hall -UofW (Columbia St) entrance.
This Sunday June 28th

It's split up for 3 different times depending on the child's age.
Parent are welcome to watch the concert with the kids, or sit in a separate "PARENT LOUNGE"
The times are as follows
Children in grades 4 & 5 concert time is 1pm
Grades 6& 7 at 4:30pm
