The lineup for the 30th annual Kidsfest will not disappoint the little ones.
Organizers of the Winnipeg International Children’s Festival on Wednesday revealed details of an interactive, life-like Dinosaur Petting Zoo, a plate-spinning comedic waiter, international children’s stars Fred Penner and Al Simmons, and a group of singing “baboons.”
The Dinosaur Petting Zoo brings kids inches away from the steely claws of the most magnificent beings ever to roam the earth, all controlled by puppeteers at Australia’s Erth Inc. Accompanied by some fascinating fossil-facts, told with heart and humour, the zoo hypnotizes audiences with its complex creatures.
Other highlights include children’s performers Jake Chenier, acoustic/bluegrass children’s musician Aaron Burnett, comedic daredevil Gustavo the Impossibilist, and others.
Advanced general public tickets are $14 each or $48 for a family pack of four. Gate prices are $16 each or $56 for a family pack of four. Tickets can be purchased in advance at all Winnipeg Safeway locations.
Kidsfest runs June 7-10 at The Forks.
