the Calgary International Children's Festival 2012

If you’ve passed by the intersection of 8th ave and 1st street SE you may have seen crossing guard clowns guiding gaggles of children safely across the street. If you’re wondering what all the excitement’s about, it’s the Calgary International Children’s Festival.

Despite the weather, the Calgary International Children’s Festival 2012 is in full swing. Running until Saturday May 26th, the festival features a wide range of activities and events for children of all ages. Theatre, workshops, puppets, song and dance, the artistic spectrum is covered by artists from around the world.

Tickets are available on the CICF website, and with most of the activities located indoors, it’s a perfect opportunity for parents and teachers to entertain and educate their children in a unique way!
