Super Saturday at Uptown centre

Superhero Kids’ Day Saturday (June 27) at Uptown Shopping Centre from 11 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

The Superheroes of Victoria children’s charity is hosting its fifth annual Superhero Kids’ Day tomorrow (June 27) at Uptown Shopping Centre from 11 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

The Superhero-themed children’s carnival is geared towards teaching kids about true local heroes such as police, fire fighters, ambulance, search and rescue, healthcare professionals and many more.

The Superheroes will be joined by a list of special guests from various charity groups, emergency services and mayors for the opening ceremony.

“We have superhero-themed games and activities, a cape and mask making station, face painting, relay races, a bouncy castle and special prizes for sharing a story about your favorite local hero,” said spokesperson Elizabeth Hall.

New this year is an Uptown Funk sing and dance-along with the Arthur Murray Dance Academy, an arts and crafts station courtesy of Michael’s, and a dunk tank featuring Victoria HarbourCats players.

A ballot will be drawn to win a Taylor Swift Package including hotel for two, meals, and two tickets to see Taylor Swift live at BC Place Stadium in Vancouver on Aug. 1.

“Most importantly we will have guest speakers throughout the day telling kids all about what they do that makes them real-life heroes. Not all heroes wear capes. Come join the fun and help us support this city’s real heroes,” Hall said.
