Peterborough Children's Water Festival
19th Annual Festival
–RESCHEDULED to Fall
- NOTICE -
Monday March 16th, 2020
The closure of Ontario schools over the next three week period as well as the necessity for many employees across sectors to work from home has meant a compressed timeline for preparing the festival, and uncertainty about the ability of our committed community and high school volunteers and registered classes to attend in May. We have made the decision to work towards a Fall festival in October 2020.
At this time we will hold all pre-registered spaces and will reach out to these teachers when a new fall date has been confirmed. Pre-registered classes will be prioritized for participation in the Fall event, with general registration to be re-opened with remaining spaces.
We will post all updates to our website and through school board communications.
Thank you for your support of Water Education!
