The Ta Daa Lady will be performing on Rain Day!

Earthwise Society’s family-friendly Rain Day is a free event that will be held on March 18 (during Spring Vacation!) from 10am – 1pm at the Earthwise Garden.

The event is kid-focused and will feature the Ta Daa Lady show, an interactive dance, rainstick crafts, and a water band.

There will be a Rain Sculpture contest that community members can vote in as well as a chance to walk around Earthwise’s organic garden. Kids can wear and show off their favourite rain gear and umbrellas. We aim to make rain more fun so that people #Fall4theRain, and hope to increase appreciation of its ecosystem benefits in our coastal temperate rainforest! Everyone is welcome.
