Event description

Description

The countdown is officially on for one of East Danforth’s biggest community events of the year and *all* are welcome! Earl Haig Public School’s 15th Annual Spring Festival is being supersized this year to include an impressive lineup of family-friendly activities, delicious local food and treats, live entertainment, games and prizes galore.

The yearly outdoor event takes place on the grounds of Earl Haig Public School, and features 30+ stations and loads of free amusement for kids of all ages, including a talent show, old school picnic races, police horses and a local fire truck.

There are also tons of ticketed activities and goods for sale (cash only please) with all proceeds going toward school initiatives and the Play EH! playground revitalization project. Get your fortune told! Win a designer cake! Feast on BBQ, bake sale treats, ice cream and cotton candy. Look supa dupa fly thanks to face painting, glitter tattoos, henna, manicures, a creative hair station and a professional photo shoot with superheroes! We got you!

Note to media: This year’s festival has joined forces with the school’s Play EH! Committee to help raise $100,000 in support of our playground revitalization initiative. Accomplishing our fundraising goal will not only help us improve the outdoor space for the students, it will better the area for the entire community.

We hope you will consider promoting our exciting festival to help contribute to its success!


Some highlights of this year’s festival include:

  • Cake Walk: Think musical chairs meets Cake Boss. This event is almost too good to be true with fancy homemade cakes being given away as prizes!

  • NEW! Toilet Toss: A goofy carnival game like no other. Toss a roll of toilet paper into an actual toilet for a chance to win a prize—great fun for kids and grown-ups alike.

  • NEW! Silly Shower: Get as many tosses as it takes to burst a water balloon over someone’s head. Oh, the joy of seeing someone else get wet.

  • Face Painting: Our talented face-painters are back for another fan favourite. (We’re predicting a popular year for pirates and jungle animals!)

  • Manicures: There’s nothing cuter than a little kid mani, amirite? We’ve got nail polish in ALL the colours of the rainbow for your little fashionistas.

  • Glitter Tattoos and Henna: Model your very own glitter tattoos or henna body art.

  • Police Horses: Come meet some of our city’s four legged finest! When they’re not fighting crime, they’re at the Earl Haig Spring Festival!

  • Fire Truck: Wanna ride on a fire truck? We bet your kiddos do and they can hop onto one and meet some of our brave local firefighters in person.

  • Arts and Crafts: Get crafty! Back by popular demand, our arts and crafts station will be led by local fave Fresh Paint Studio + Cafe.

  • Win a Jar: This station is a smash hit every year! Kids LOVE to take home these DIY jars filled with fun little gifts and treats and we’re promising hundreds of jars to give away this year.

  • BBQ: Dinner sorted! Enjoy all-beef, halal chicken and veggie hot dogs, Stock in Trade’s delicious pulled chicken sandwiches, halal chicken biryani, veggie samosas, fresh fruit, jumbo freezies and an assortment of refreshing drinks.

  • Carter’s Ice Cream: Yummy and quaint parlour style Kawartha dairy ice cream is a must at any summery spring festival!

  • Cotton Candy Machine: A fun fair favourite. (Limit one per child. Parents not liable for sugar-induced highs.)

  • NEW! Silent Art Auction: Almost every class at Earl Haig has been collaborating on their class masterpiece for our first silent art auction! Featuring more than 20 works of art.

  • NEW! Gift Basket Raffle: We’ve got lots of prizes and goodies to give away, including toys, cooking appliances, gourmet treats and luxury skincare.
