Healthy Living Festival returns for fourth year

By: April Scott-Clarke

For the fourth year in a row the annual Healthy Living Festival will be taking to the streets of downtown Smiths Falls on June 18.

The Downtown Business Association (DBA) has been planning the event since November and has been able to bring together an interesting lineup of performances and activities for people to enjoy. This year there will be a Little Thing Running Thing for kids in the morning and multiple Hockey Circus Show performances, alongside jugglers and acrobatic acts throughout the day.

And for anyone who likes inflatables, there will be lots at the festival for you to try out! You can walk on water with the water balls, zip down a 75-foot inflatable zip line or do an obstacle course from inside a ball. And new this year, a toddler zone for the littles ones who want to jump.

But the Healthy Living Festival is about more than just performances and activities. There will be a vendor market that people can purchase anything from fresh, grown veggies to yoga cloths. “There is a variety of vendors and hopefully, there is something for everyone,” said Nicola Thomson, DBA coordinator.
The Healthy Living Festival is a tradition now in Smiths Falls, one that started as a way to bring people into the downtown core. “We have a lot of people in the community that are involved in health and wellness,” explained Thomson, making the theme of the festival a natural one.

Last year the festival attracted approximately 8,000 people and Thomson is guessing that just as many, or more, make it out to this year’s event.

The opening ceremonies will kick off at 10 a.m. with everything wrapping up at 4 p.m. And Thomson reminds everyone that the event is free. “We didn’t want to have any barriers for the community,” she said. “This event really wouldn’t be possible without the help of the organizing committee. It’s a volunteer board. And the local businesses have been generous with their sponsorship too.”

For a complete run down on the Healthy Living Festival, schedule of events or registration for the various sports tournaments and fundraisers happening, visit the website at downtownsmithsfalls.ca/healthy-living-festival.

The countdown is on for the third annual Healthy Living Festival, coming to Downtown Smiths Falls on Saturday, June 20, 2015. Get ready for a day of intense, fun-filled activities, demonstrations, and unique vendors and that will make you want to come back for MORE! With all the excitement brewing, the festival planning committee is delighted to share with you the newest edition to the festival line-up: the 3-on-3 Basketball Tournament, made possible by the efforts of Todd Spencer and the Smiths Falls’ Storm basketball team.

The tournament is open to teams of up to three (3) people, with several different age categories to suit all skill levels, and will operate from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The cost is $10 per person, which includes a light lunch for each registered player.

The Move-A-Thon will run from 10:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. and will be pumped full of high-octane, 80’s music and dance moves instructed by many of Smiths Falls talented and dedicated fitness instructors.

In addition to the Move-a-Thon and basketball tournament, the festival will showcase brand new water-based activities such as the Andress’ Your Independent Grocer’s WOW Balls, the Smiths Falls Canadian Tire Paddleboats and the GIM Wrecking Ball. Look for the return of the talented face painters, street buskers and strongmen, as well as all your favourite inflatable equipment and the beloved rock climbing wall. A wealth of health related information and materials will be made available through a variety of retail vendors, seminars and demonstrations.
