Campbell River’s Toy and Craft Show features more than 80 vendors

Events support seniors’ 50+ Active Living programs

T’is the season for craft shows, so it’s no surprise there are a few happening this weekend.

The Mirror popped into the large Toy and Craft Show at the Sportsplex to see what’s going on.

Coordinator Linda Kubinec said the event, which runs Saturday and Sunday, has more than 80 local and Vancouver Island crafters and vendors, and it takes place with the help of 29 volunteers, most of whom are over 65. Proceeds from the show support 50+ Active Living programs in the community that are offered through the local recreation department.

“I love organizing the volunteers … that help to produce this toy and craft sale,” Kubinec says.

The event runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day.
