Back for a second year, the North West Kids Fest is a two-day event aimed at getting marginalized kids active in a fun and engaging way.

A number of activities were planned for the two-day festival including soccer baseball around the Goldeyes field, earth ball and the ever-so-popular water games. In addition to the games, kids enjoyed several craft stations will be set up including a balloon animal workshop and face painting.

Approximately 200 kids aged 5-15 from the United Way funded Youth Agencies Alliance, a
network of 19 youth-serving agencies including NEEDS, Boys and Girls Clubs of Winnipeg, West Central Community Program, Spence Neighbourhood Association, CSI, IRCOM and Teen Stop Jeunesse, took part in North West Kids Fest.

Thanks to the dedicated volunteers from The North West Company who made this Day of Caring happen!
