The kids were selected from a colouring contest after colouring sheets were handed out at voting booths in October in an effort to get more kids interested in their community.

Tomorrow, “their worships” will spend time with Victoria Mayor Lisa Helps and Victoria city councillors, and get a chance to wind the historic clock in the clock tower, visit a fire hall and tour the new Johnson Street Bridge control room.

The kids will aslo get a complimentary lunch.
