momstown Victoria celebrates momstown 6th Birthday Bash!

momstown Victoria was one of the first of 19 communities across Canada to celebrate its momstown 6th Birthday Bash event! Over 400 local moms, dads and kids enjoyed fun activities for ages 0 to 6 with the help of local and national sponsors! These were just a few of the fun things to see and do at our event:

Loot bags, parachute play and special guests were among the birthday fun at this year's momstown 6th Birthday Bash celebration!

Kids made a fun octopus craft with our Platinum Sponsor Island Parent Magazine.

Martin Newham estimates that 80% of the kids passed The Marshmallow Test, sponsored by Investors Group!

Silk Road Tea provided healthy Iced Rooibos Tea for the Nursing/Rest Area.

Shaw Ocean Discovery Centre brought Ollie the Octopus and a microscope lab!

Kids hopped, tossed and balanced with our Fitness & Adventure sponsor in the Jr. Sportball area with coaches from Sportball Victoria.

Clifford the Big Red Dog from Scholastic Canada made a special guest appearance!

Par-T-Perfect Victoria brought Balloon Animals and a huge Crayon Bouncy Castle!

Guests were delighted with these delicious chocolate cupcakes made by Kyrie Smith, a talented baker at Wildfire Bakery.

All the toys in our Fisher-Price Little People Toy Testing area became special door prizes in our final grand prize draw!

Parents and tots could cuddle up and read with our books from Scholastic Canada in Clifford's Reading Tent.

Birthday guests also enjoyed an open kindergym, parachute play, Dora Live Colouring Station, and three amazing prize draws with 18 door prizes in total!
