Rain or Shine, teddy bears and other stuffed toys had a great time outdoors at the 33rd annual Teddy Bears’ Picnic held Sunday at Assiniboine Park.
Over 50 tents provided a fun, entertaining and educational experience for the whole family.
Volunteer health professionals were also in site showing and explaining various aspects of health care.
Kids had fun with games, face paint, mascots and had some interaction with ghostbusters and community heroes like policemen and firemen.
Eight year old Zedric who brought his Sonic the Hedgehog stuffie had a serious chat with an officer who listened to his story about his created comics character fighting villains. The policeman quipped “Do not forget to include policemen in your story.”
He and his 6-year old cousin Nejan also enjoyed their tour of the fire truck.
The event also gave chance for the kids’ favorite stuffed animal to have a check up at the Dr. Goodbear Clinic.
Evanov Radio is proud to be part of this Winnipeg tradition which is a big fundraiser for the Children’s Hospital Foundation of Manitoba.
Friends from CKJS 810, Hot 100.5 and Energy 106 joined local celebrities and other volunteers from the media at the Rotary Club Tent where they grilled and served hotdogs and burgers.
Proceeds from purchases and sponsorships throughout the day will go towards research, equipment and programs at the Children’s Hospital in Winnipeg.
