Waterloo students offer fun family activities this weekend

Friday, November 21, 2014

Students from the Faculty of Applied Health Sciences at the University of Waterloo will offer a day of free family programming in Waterloo on Saturday.

Waterloo West Neighbourhood Fest will take place at the John M. Harper Branch of the Waterloo Public Library and the Stork Family YMCA. It will include a variety of engaging activities for children ranging in age from two to 12 years old. Among the scheduled events, children will learn about science as they make their own liquid nitrogen ice cream, get messy with paint bowling and participate in some fun cardio exercises. Parents accompanying children to the event will receive free admission to YMCA facilities that day.

Students from the Department of Recreation and Leisure Studies at Waterloo organize and run the event, now in its third year. Last year, more than 200 participants attended.
