Family Day Challenge: Aimed at families with kids between 3-12yrs old.

I’m not sure I fully understand this event but there is a “Family Day Challenge” happening in Kelowna.
From what I read on their website (http://www.familydaychallenge.com/) they have ten activity stations set up that are all aimed at making good lifestyle choices for your family. For example some of the stations include: trying new things, making healthy choices, and  the environment.

Tickets are $25 for each family and that includes a two hour window of interactive activities. Definitely check out their website for full information.

Here is the video that they made to promote the event:

Admission: $ 5.00 per person or $15.00per family (max 6 per family)

Here is a video from an event I helped organize at the first annual Family Day through Creative Okanagan:
