By 12 noon on Tuesday, September 1st, signs had been posted, games set up, tents erected and hot dogs were steaming in the cooker. Music from DJ Don House soon had everyone moving to the beat, and the Community Fun Fair at South Arm Park was off to a good start!

Persons served, family members and staff from the Richmond Community Inclusion Program worked together to organize their first Community Fun Fair! The event was jam packed with a variety of entertainment, food and interactive activities. Attendees were entertained throughout the day by a musical demonstration from the African Drumming Group, a performance from the Richmond Community Inclusion Program Choir and music from DJ Don House!

The event was a great success and was well received by the community with over 200 attendees who were entertained with activities such as facepainting, temporary tattoos, button making as well as numerous games led by our persons served from Richmond Community Inclusion Program. They were instrumental in brainstorming, designing and creating fun games for the kids and were in charge of the prize table as well – all of which were a great hit at the event!
