In a world crowded with special effects and lots of screen time, the performing arts are as important as ever before. From May 24 –27, immerse your kids into the world of performing arts with the Calgary International Children’s Festival. Kids will use their imaginations to engage with live performances; not to mention, attending the theatre is a great way to breakaway from screen-time as an engaging activity for the whole family.
