It's A Whimsical Weekend for Thousands of Children at Downtown Yonge BIA's

- Big birds, cool cats and cartoon celebrities entertain at Yonge-Dundas Square -

TORONTO, Nov. 27 /CNW/ - A mob of teeny toddlers will descend on Yonge-Dundas Square for a fun-filled weekend of kid-friendly rides, face-painting, crafts and interactive performances at the Downtown Yonge BIA's Kidzfest - a free two-day event with guest appearances from cartoon celebrities Max & Ruby, Dora & Diego and Spongebob Squarepants on his 10th anniversary tour. On November 28th and 29th, adventurous tots will swing around the square in a colourful swing carousel, whirl around on the ladybug ride and take their 'coverkid' moment posing in a faux magazine shoot. Harry and His Bucket Full of Dinosaurs pack prehistoric fun into the first performance of the weekend, followed by a slew of musical guests including David Archibald and Maggie G. Fun will 'let fly' with Birds of Prey on Saturday, and Jungle Cat World brings a rip-roaring good time to Sunday.

Kidzfest is a free event that takes place on Saturday and Sunday, November 28th and 29th as part of the Downtown Yonge BIA's Winter Magic festivities. Further information is available at
