Looking to kick off Spring Break with a bang, then head down the Healthy Family Expo at the Vancouver Convention Centre. There are tons of kids activities from live performances to wall climbing to bouncy castles and even indoor gardening! Even better, kids up to 16 years old are FREE!
What to do at the Healthy Family Expo
Active Kids Zone
There’s lots of active fun on at the show this year. Watch your kids scale the Climb Base5 climbing wall, test drive some bikes and agility courses in the Pedalheads area, and let the kids have a go at some sports in the Sportball in the Active Kids Zone. A-Star Art Parlour brings their Superstar Bounce for the little ones and a 5-in-1 Clubhouse Bounce for the bigger kids! Tumbletown and the FunGymBus ensure that no child goes home with energy to burn! And of course there’s face painting, which is so popular that The World Of Kidtropolis is presenting a dedicated face painting area.
On the main stage, Bobs and Lolo will be making an appearance at 10 am so superfans better get here early! Then at 11:30, kids can learn how to grow veggies with EnviroKids. Jessie Farrell is excited to perform at 12:30 and 2:30 pm with her friends Daniel Tiger, SuperWHY, Scout & Daisy. Later kids can get their yayas out with DancePl3Yt at 3:30; see inspiring young performers on the Vancouver Performing Stars at 4:00 pm and cap the day off with a Squamish Flow Ninja demo at 4:30 pm.
