Kids are the focus:

Crafts and activities start at 10:30. We'll learn about the realities for many children around the world working in hazardous conditions with no schooling. Find out how to make a difference by shopping for and creating a demand for goods that are produced in safe conditions by workers receiving fair pay. That’s what Fair Trade is all about! Local participating shops make it easy by offering Fair Trade coffee, tea, cocoa, chocolate, sugar, spices, bananas and jewellery.

Come to Fair Trade Day to learn more about how we can all fight child labour and exploitation. Displays and participation by World Vision Canada.

Activities:

Vendors with homemade snacks, local produce, and Fair crafts
10:30 – Kids gather to make a beaded something for Mother’s Day, instruments for shaking in our parade:
11:30 – Parade: all bring along instruments to join in the ruckus and celebration!
