KENTVILLE – Centre Square was the centre of fun May 26 as kids snacked on candy, got their faces painted and climbed a rock wall at the Apple Blossom’s carnival.
After many sat still during the Children’s Parade, they were able to let loose and explore a variety of activities at their fingertips.
- A grand event: 2018 Grand Parade is Apple Blossom’s largest-yet
- Canning’s Kendra Whitehead crowned Queen Annapolisa LXXXVI
- No raining on this parade: colourful Apple Blossom Children’s Parade marches on
Kentville kid Kale Surette, 5, was one of many kids enjoying the different carnival activities, including the rock climbing. He got a helpful hand from mom Tanya Oickle, who helped hoist him onto the next level of footholds as he climbed.
Oickle and Surette come out for the event nearly every year.
“He was so excited that he was awake by 6:30 this morning,” she said.
Others, like Esta Viner, 5, got their faces painted with different colours and animals. Vanessa Viner said it was no surprise her daughter chose a unicorn.
“She really loves [them], so this makes a lot of sense,” she laughed.
