Oakville Family Ribfest
Kick Off Summer at Oakville's 8th Annual Ribfest!
The Co-operators Oakville Family Ribfest, the largest event in Oakville, is on the first official weekend of summer. Each year Sheridan College Trafalgar campus hosts Oakville Ribfest which is a festival fillled with food, fun and music.
Can you imagine looking in the mirror and seeing Spiderman staring back at you? Would you like to gross-out your friends with the most realistic-looking make-up gashes and wounds around?
One thing is for sure, fun will abound at this year’s Kids’ PlayZone – it will be the destination of choice for young ones from toddlers to teens. And best of all: everything in it is free!
The Home Depot is back with its mega-successful Kids’ Workshop, a one-on-one craft activity. Physical fun can be had on enormous bouncy castles that will keep little ones entertained for hours. Local robotics teams will be demonstrating their scientific know-how with a variety of robots. A balloon clown will entertain with incredible balloon animals.
And sure to melt your heart will be the opportunity to have your little one’s picture taken with Elsa, Belle, Ariel or Cinderella from the blockbuster Disney movies, and Chase from Paw Patrol as well. They’ll be roaming the site for much of the weekend.
