Bring your kids to Mt Cain on March 19 for races, a snow-sculpting contest, an obstacle course race and more. The annual, family-oriented Kids Fest has activities for kids of all ages and it a great way to spend the day.

Events and activities are open to kids 15 and under. There are races for skiers and boarders of all skill levels and everyone is welcome. Whether your kids have been skiing for years or this is their first time trying snowboarding, there is an event for them.

Registration opens at 8:30 a.m. and the races start at 10:30. Other events continue throughout the day. The day will wrap up with an awards ceremony at 3:45 p.m. in the Lodge. There will be ribbons presented to the winners and a draw for prizes, thanks to the generosity of business and individuals in Campbell River, Port McNeill, Sointula, and other parts of the North Island.
