UXBRIDGE: The Uxbridge Historical Centre’s very first annual Family Kite Festival will be flying over to the Quaker Hill site this Sunday, June 19.
People are encouraged to bring their kite to fly on the historical grounds at 7239 Concession 6 in Uxbridge, or they can make their own at the event. There will also be other kids activities and games such as crafts and face painting, as well as music.
Historical Centre Curator Nancy Marr said that it made a lot of sense for an event such as this to be held at the local Historical Centre.
“It’s a very windy spot and we have a lot of open space here, so we thought it would be perfect to hold this type of event,” she said.
She also added that there are multiple reasons for people to come to the festival.
“It’s an opportunity to see buildings and artifacts that represent Uxbridge’s history, and it is part of the Take T.I.M.E program, so it is free for the public.”she said. “It is a day for families to come together and do something together.”
The festival will run from 1 p.m. until 4 p.m. People can pre-register at www.taketimeuxbridge.ca, and will be entered for a chance to win a kite.
Uxbridge’s Take T.I.M.E program provides free family activities in the township to encourage healthy active lifestyles. T.I.M.E. stands for tobacco free, injury free, moving daily and eating healthy. For more Take T.I.M.E events, check out the Uxbridge Recreation Facebook page.
