Bella Coola Music Festival’s Children’s Site to feature climbing wall, crafts

A little over a month to go before the Bella Coola Music Festival will be in full swing and, as always, the Children’s Site will have something to offer all ages. This year the ever-popular 30 foot climbing wall will be onsite all day, as well as the bounce house, crafts, entertainment and more.

The Festival is excited to welcome award-winning singer/songwriter Helen Austin as our featured children’s performer this year. Helen’s 2013 children’s album ‘Always Be a Unicorn’ was nominated for a Juno award, and she has performed in festivals all over North America. Helen will perform an intimate concert for the little ones in the Children’s Site during the afternoon of Sunday, July 21.

But wait, there’s more! This year’s featured performers are the versatile and talented ‘Hoopla Troupe.’ Hailing from Victoria, BC, Hoopla Troupe makes use of music, fire dancing, clowning, crafting, storytelling, hula-hooping and puppetry to create and play.  They will be conducting ‘playshops’ in singing, clowning, hoopdance, and craft making (rattles, faeries and ‘Beat Creatures’). Hoola Troupe will be fire dancing between sets, clowning, and provide hours of entertainment in the Children’s Site on Sunday.

Children under 12 are FREE, so be sure to bring the family down on Sunday, July 21 to enjoy all the Festival and the Children’s Site has to offer. The Children’s Site is open from noon to 5pm, for more information check out www.bellacoolamusic.org
