Chase away the November chills at the first annual Kinnikinnick School Fall Fair, happening Saturday, Nov. 12 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Open to the public and free to enter, the fair is a family-friendly event with a crafters’ and artisans’ market, bouncy castles, carnival games, a cake walk and amazing door prizes – including ferry passes, a gas fire pit and beautiful gift baskets donated by local businesses. Hotdogs will be served up by the Lions, and there will be hot apple cider, homemade chili, popcorn and other refreshments. Kinnikinnick School is located at 6030 Lighthouse Ave., Sechelt. 

Tickets will be sold for the door prize raffle, food and games, with all proceeds going towards new, accessible playground equipment that will enrich the school and the surrounding community. Kinnikinnick’s student body is diverse and growing, with more than 250 children registered in grades K-7 in 2022. Most existing playground equipment dates from the school’s opening, in 1990, and several pieces have had to be removed after falling into disrepair. 

To date, the school’s Parent Advisory Committee has raised approximately $12,000 towards its goal of $250,000. 

Event updates are available at the PAC’s Kinnikinnick School Facebook page or by emailing kinnikinnick46pac@gmail.com.
