10:30 a.m. - Dawn Dreams

Dawn Dreams is a contemporary circus artist specializing in contact juggling, clown & ground level circus arts.  Performing since 2005, she has travelled through 4 continents as a street and stage performance artist. Her most prominent work is a 38 minute solo juggling show with the Kingston Symphony Orchestra to the classic music of Scheherazade. 

11:30 a.m. - Speaking of Wildlife

Speaking of Wildlife is a traveling Wildlife Education Centre that provides permanent sanctuary to non-releasable Ontario wildlife; many of their animals have been orphaned, abandoned, injured or illegally kept as pets and cannot be released to the wild. As such, these animals become ambassadors for their species, teaching audiences throughout the province about the animals that we share our environment with. 

This one-hour interactive presentation features 5 of Speaking of Wildlife's Ontario wildlife ambassadors such as groundhog, hawk, raccoon, skunk, goose, squirrel, falcon, opossum, etc. This presentation includes information about each individual animal, their species, adaptations and habitat. 

12 p.m. to 1 p.m. - Ice Age

Enjoy breaking up frozen sections of ice to free a keepsake toy animal (while supplies last). 

12:30 p.m. - Battle of the Chainsaws

2:15 p.m. - Battle of the Chainsaws

Will the winning professional ice carver hold their bragging rights, as they compete again in another Battle of the Chainsaws.
