Annual children’s festival returns to Mississauga

January 29, 2018 by  

Kids Fest Toronto returns for its ninth annual festival with the largest selection of inflatable rides and attractions ever.

The 2018 festival will include over 80,000 square feet of indoor space, featuring more than 30 inflatable rides and attractions. For one admission price, children can bounce, slide, play and laugh all day. The event is designed for kids of all ages, including toddler-themed rides and, new for this year, a special Teen Zone.

The event will also feature exotic animals, Mad Science experiments, mini golf and carnival games. Live entertainment will be located on the main stage throughout the weekend. Refreshments will be available for purchase, and parking is free.

A registered nonprofit charity is partnered with the carnival this year. Crafting for a Cure works to create positive experiences for children during hospital visits. Revellers are invited to stop by the charity’s table and complete a craft.

Applications for vendors at the festival are still being accepted. Print companies are often used to create branded signs and decorations for use in the booths at this sort of event.

Volunteers over the age of 16 are needed, and will be provided with lunch during their shift, then entered into a draw to win prizes. Local high school students may use these hours towards their required community service hours.

Kids Fest will be held over the Family Day long weekend, from February 17 to 19, at the International Centre Hall 6, located at 6900 Airport Road in Mississauga. Admission for children over the age of two will be $25, and adult admission will be $8. A Family Pass is also available for $60. Tickets may be purchased on the festival website.
