TORONTO, March 8 /CNW/ - On Saturday March 26, Canadians will join
millions of people around the world in turning off their lights for an
hour to demand action on climate change. TVOKids invites you to be part
of it. Join TVOKids at the Ontario Science Centre for three Earth Hour
performances, including a free outdoor evening stage show.
The TVOKids Don't Sit Still Tour, presented by EatRight Ontario, will
present three live, high-energy performances with infectious songs and
fun dance moves to get the whole family involved. The afternoon
performances at 2 pm and 3:30 pm are free with admission to the Ontario
Science Centre. The third performance will be part of an Earth Hour
celebration at 8 pm in the TELUSCAPE outdoor plaza that is free to all.
TVOKids hosts Kara and Drew will be joined by Enviro Girl and Captain
Kent to pair the "Don't Sit Still" message of healthy eating and
healthy lifestyle with the mission of keeping our Earth healthy. As a
memento of the show and its message of healthy living, kids receive
free "Don't Sit Still" gift bags.
"The 'Don't Sit Still' shows are a fun way to share important healthy
living messages with young children and their parents. The shows take
place in communities throughout the province. Encouraging children to
be active every day, and to eat more fruits and vegetables leads to the
development of good habits for better health and well-being," says
Margarett Best, Ontario's Minister of Health Promotion and Sport.
Also as part of the outdoor evening show, TVOKids, in partnership with
the Ontario Science Centre, proudly presents StarWatch. Now in its
fourth year, StarWatch is a Canada-wide experiment that measures light
pollution levels during and after Earth Hour.
Following are the details for the three Earth Hour performances at the
Ontario Science Centre. Each show is approximately 30 minutes.
