Visitors can get up and close to the farm animals found at Kilby Historic Site. Opening day is Friday

Kilby Historic Site re-opening Easter weekend

Kilby Historic Site has a full season of events and activities planned for the whole family.

Kilby Historic Site will officially open for the 2015 season on Friday, April 3. The historic site has a full season of events and activities planned for the whole family.

The season kicks off with the Annual Easter Egg Hunt. Children can collect their eggs to claim a prize, decorate an egg to hang on Kilby’s Easter tree and then continue the search for the elusive Golden and Silver eggs to win a special prize! And don’t miss the Traditional Turkey Feast prepared just for the holiday! Sittings are at 12pm & 2pm. Bookings recommended!

Four brand new events have joined Kilby’s old favourites this season: The ‘Waterloo Farm Festival’ on June 28; ‘Kilby Fibre Festival’ on July 5; the ‘Roaring Twenties Gala’ on August 9; and the ‘Plein Air Painting Festival’ will be held on August 14, 15 & 16. And due to its popularity last summer, Kilby’s ‘Visitor Appreciation Summer Carnival’ will be back on August 23. This festive bash, thrown to celebrate all the partners and supporters will be ‘admission by donation’. There’ll be live music, carnival games, market stalls, face-painting, crafts, a barbecue and loads of prizes for the kids! Be sure to check out Kilby’s website for more details on these and other events: www.kilby.ca

Also new to the programming: Kilby Historic Site is now taking bookings for children’s birthday parties. You can add on extras such as ice cream making or crafts, or go all out with the Teddy Bear Tea Party or Pirate Party packages.
