Booth 2017: Day 1

Hoards of children descended upon the Canada Booth (a tad earlier than anticipated) on this first day of the 2017 Raleigh International Festival. We tricked young and old by switching the names of the superheroes featured in the booth… but many have thus discovered the amazing Nelvana of the Northern Lights and super cool Captain Canuck.

Canada 150 flags, pins, tattoos as well as maple candy and colouring sheets were distributed to the great delight of the masses. See our wonderful volunteers in action!

Many thanks to volunteers Shirley, Tera, Denise, Craig, Dominique, Gary, Paul and Caroline for hosting the Canada Booth today!

Canada Booth: Going! (Day 2)

Second day at the International Festival and the Canada Booth is still a destination for visitors.  Having great fun telling them that James Naismith was Canadian and that we totally rock at curling! Love impressing them with the fact that we have two national sports–hockey (winter) and lacrosse (summer).  Nice to see jaws drop when they realize that their favourite board game or video game was invented by a Canadian or produced in Canada!


Many thanks to our wonderful volunteers for their energy and cheerfulness: Gary, Paul; Caroline, Geoff, Alyssa, Emilie, Martin and Greg.

Canada Booth: Go! (Day 1)

The Canada Booth is open for business and this morning we offered visitors our Canadian interpretation of the Festival theme, Games from Around the World. We were completely mobbed (there is no other word) by the hoard of children who descended upon us between 10am and 1:30pm (approximately 3000 children were expected). Trying to enter the Booth was like going through customs… you practically had to wait in line!

Here are a few pictures of today’s Booth activities.

Thanks you to Caroline, Gary,  Jen, Paul, Lynda, Sue and Dominique for hosting the Booth today. Your time, smiles and enthusiasm are much appreciated.

Canada Booth: On your mark!
