Kids' Stuff

Our 5th annual summer party…
… is happening on Sunday Aug. 27, and you, and your family, and all your friends, are invited to come share a beautiful day, in a beautiful park, full of surprises!
Who would expect Kingcrest Park (at Knight and East 25th) to have DJs playing danceable tunes in the middle of the day?
When was the last time you stumbled upon a 50m waterslide on a normally empty hillside? (A WATERSLIDE??? Yes! A waterslide!)
What the heck is a watermelon carving contest, and how do you win? What do you win? Other than delicious fruit salad?
What time does it run? What should you bring?
Great questions!
Join Buddings for a slip n’ sliding, music and dance party that’s open to kids and families of all ages and persuasions! Bring a towel, something inflatable, and a picnic lunch, and spend the day under the trees, dancing up a storm, or sliding down the hill.
The water starts running at 11am, and we’ll have family-friendly music and activities until 1pm (or maybe later, if it’s too much fun to shut down…)
Explore East Van!
Famous Foods, Anytime Fitness, and Poke Acupuncture are all awesome businesses that you’re going to love. And you can meet them, and win prizes, at our event. The neighbourhood at Knight and King Ed (East 25th), is full of amazing amenities well worth a visit, and the Buddings Bear picnic is your chance to explore!
Plus! King Edward Village holds the Kensington Library – running their summer reading club until the end of August – a Save-On Supermarket, and soon… coming this winter… a brand new addition… it’s a…
It’s a surprise!
If you want the details, you’ll have to make an appearance. Or should we say, an a-bear-ance!
Join our newsletter to get all the details, or present yourself on Sunday Aug. 27, ready to get wet and wild.
See you there!
