Hey Kids!

  • Bring your bikes, skateboards, rollerblades and scooters and meet up with the Big Dandee – our festival’s giant Dandelion at 11 am at the foot of Simcoe Street. Take part in the 1 KM All-Wheels Mini Challenge by riding all the way into the centre of Millennium Park. Can you do it? Don’t forget your helmets!
