I just wanted to tell everyone about a great event we attended today. It is a fundraiser this weekend from 10-3 on Saturday and Sunday at the Arion Therapeutic Farm. It is really cheap entertainment: tour the farm, pat the pot belly pigs, see the alpaca’s, donkeys and the pregnant goat with twins.
Then we went down and enjoyed hot chocolate, face painting, raffles, hot dogs, regular cookies and gluten-free cookies. The gingerbread men were also available gluten-free and dairy-free.
We sat on Santa’s knee and had pony rides. The atmosphere is electric and it was a tonne of fun! The girls saw so many kids they knew. It reminded me of the McMillan Pumpkin Patch.
It supports a great cause – they are fundraising for a whole bunch of things – but the main thing is it provides therapeutic riding for special needs. Click to read the full article about it in the Friday Capital News.
Hope you can all go, enjoy the animals, santa etc. and support a great cause!
Arion Therapeutic Farm is at 2457 Saucier Road in East Kelowna.
