The spots are filling up for the vendors and participants at the third annual Walnut Grove Family Day Festival, which will be held this June.
â€œThereâ€™s a few spots left,â€ said Laurie Daschuk of the Walnut Grove Business Association.
The association has extended the early bird special rate into May for those who want to buy a spot.
The festival is an opportunity for businesses to get a booth amid a family event that saw 5,000 visitors last year, an increase over between 2-3,000 people who stopped by in 2012.
However, the main goal for most of the exhibitors is not to simply sell their products, but to interact with the community.
Many of last yearâ€™s booths were set up to allow people to play games or to hand out popsicles.
â€œItâ€™s just kind of about having fun,â€ Daschuk said.
The festival will boast a petting zoo, pony rides, a bouncy castle and hot air balloon rides, a dress up photo booth, and face painting.
There will also be live entertainment for the young ones, headed up by veteran Canadian childrenâ€™s singer Charlotte Diamond.
All the money raised by the festival will stay in the community to help children and families in need.
Through the Langley School District Foundation, the festival organizers identify families in need. Past projects have included paying for car repairs, buying a computer for an autistic child, and purchasing groceries.
It can be anything that helps out a child or family from the Walnut Grove area, said Daschuk.
The organizers are hoping to raise more this year.
The Township has been supportive of the efforts to get the festival going, as have a large number of local businesses which have acted as sponsors, she said.
