For the first time since 2020, the Kids Can Fly Storybook Breakfast will be held at the Hellenic Community Centre in Brantford on Saturday, February 4, 2023.
“Storybook Breakfast is an event designed for families with young children,” the organization said. “Guests are invited to dress up and attend this banquet breakfast while being greeted and entertained by a wide variety of famous storybook characters in costume.”
This event is open to all ages but organizers said that it is especially geared toward children ages between two and eight. All children in attendance will receive a goodie bag which will include an age-appropriate book.
“This year’s Storybook Breakfast theme is “Imagination,” and will leave guests enjoying decorations from a variety of popular storybook themes and popular children’s movies,” Kids Can Fly said. “Guests will enjoy a pancake breakfast with all the fixings and can expect to meet many of their favourite characters, including Cat in the Hat, Elsa, Olaf, the Lorax, Peter Pan, Peppa Pig, the Hungry Caterpillar, Little Red Riding Hood, and more! There will be opportunities to get an autograph book signed by all of the guest’s favourite characters and tons of photo opportunities.”
Kids Can Fly is a not-for-profit organization in Brantford that supports early learning and parenting.
“The Storybook breakfast is one of our favourite events of the year!” said Penny Bellhouse, who attends the event regularly. “The kids love watching their favourite books come to life while enjoying a yummy meal and quality time as a family.”
Funds raised through sponsorship and the event go back into the Kids Can Fly organization to support programs and events including Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library, the LaunchPad, Parachute programs, our Cognitive Behavioural Therapy research partnership with McMaster University the annual ECE Banquet, the Prenatal Program, and Roots of Empathy.
At this year’s event there are two sittings; one at 9:00 a.m. and another at 11:00 a.m. Tickets for the event must be purchased in advance. Organizers said that they recommend buying tickets as early as possible because the event historically sells out.
Ticket prices are as follows: Adults: $20; Children under 12: $12 and are available for purchase on the Kids Can Fly website (www.kidscanfly.ca).
