Street party fulfils children’s wishes

Johnson Street Festival helps Make-A-Wish Foundation of B.C.

A dunk tank, yoga and other activities will replace the stream of vehicle traffic on Johnson Street for one day.

Saturday (Aug. 27) marks the Johnson Street Festival for the Make-A-Wish Foundation of B.C. and Yukon.

The foundation grants the wishes of kids aged three to 17 battling life-threatening medical conditions.

Mayor Dean Fortin is auctioning off his parking spot for one week, with an opening bid price of $100, with proceeds going to the charity.

The festivities launch at 10 a.m. with the city’s largest yoga class, and run until 6 p.m. in the 500 and 600 blocks of Johnson St. For more information, go online to www.johnsonstreetfest.com.
