Hundreds of families are expected to converge at the annual community event in memory of Lucas Holtom in Brampton, Saturday, July 8 at Leander Park at Howden Boulevard from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
There is plenty of entertainment for the children who will no doubt want to enjoy a pony rides or attempt a rock-climbing wall, 69-foot obstacle course, rainbow falls slip slider, nine-hole mini-putt (Lucas Links), henna, face painting and more. Fans of Markus, the popular children’s entertainer from Treehouse TV, will no doubt be thrilled to know he will be performing onstage. And for cash-sensitive parents, it is important to know that all the activities are free and the only cost is if they choose to purchase food.
Proceeds from the event will go toward sponsoring a refugee family from Syria, said Jamie Holtom, minister of North Bramalea United and host.
The fun community event, which has been running since 2001, honours the memory of two-year-old Lucas, who died at Pine Lakes in Alberta when his family was caught in a tornado. His parents, Jamie and Katrina Holtom, set up the carnival to give families an opportunity to spend quality time together and to celebrate life.
