Plenty new to do at Happy Days

  • Print

Happy Days are here again.

The annual Happy Days on Henderson festival is set to return with some new amusements in store for the 12th running of the event at the Christian Family Centre at 81 Henderson Hwy.
"It’s a whole year of planning, and now you’re thinking ‘Is everything in place?’" she said.

In addition to mainstays like the free barbecue, local talent stage, face-painting, bouncy gyms, and local organizations with information tables, there are plenty of new attractions this year.

Realtors Geoff and Regan Archambault have volunteered to set up their mobile movie screen from a showing of the Disney-Pixar blockbuster Brave at dusk around 9 p.m. Free popcorn will be provided.

"People are encouraged to come back with their kids, and whether it’s lawn chairs or blankets or whatever, just watch the movie," said Stucyk.

Additionally, the festival will be encouraging kids to pedal about.

"We also have a bike rodeo, where kids can bring their bike and get their bike checked for summer," she said. "We’re also going to be giving away 12 bikes and helmets."

Stucyk said there have been bikes given away in past years, but never as many as they are giving away this year.

On the theme of physical activity, there will also be a tai chi display and a Zumba demonstration.

As well, Stucyk hopes to have the Winnipeg Fire Department’s antique fire truck in attendance, though that is contingent on sunny weather.

Stucyk said the festival has enough volunteers for this year’s event, but those looking to hop aboard to help plan the 2014 edition can contact her at janicestucyk@yahoo.ca
