Chatham-Kent / Lambton –
Due to the ongoing uncertainty around Covid-19 and return to school protocols, the organizers of the annual fall Chatham-Kent & Lambton Children’s Water Festival have made the difficult decision to cancel the festival for this fall.
This three day outdoor event was scheduled to take place Oct. 6 to 8, 2020 at the C.M. Wilson Conservation Area just south east of Chatham. In a typical year, over 2,000 elementary school students and 450 volunteers have attended this event. The festival has been running since 2007, attracting over 16,000 elementary students at the Grade 4/5 level during that time period.
The festival would have celebrated its 11th year this coming fall. This outdoor festival focuses on the themes of water science, water technology, water conservation, water protection and water attitude, through the delivery of over 40 hands-on, fun filled and interactive activity centres.
Next year’s festival dates have already been set, with the three day festival occurring from Oct. 5 to 7, 2021 at the C.M. Wilson Conservation Area.
