It's All Fun and Games and Eco-Lessons at the 2nd Annual CBRM Water Fun Fair


Sydney, NS - Say hello to Tappy, the water drop mascot, and learn a local
eco-lesson while having fun at this year's CBRM Water Fun Fair. The fair
will take place at the Mayflower Mall Friday, October 28th and Saturday,
October 29th from 12 to 6 PM with unique games created for kids to make a
splash while learning about local and global environmental issues.


The second annual Water Fun Fair, hosted in partnership with ACAP Cape
Breton, CBRM Water Utility and CBRM Wastewater Operations, will feature four
stations with games and activities offering something for everyone.
Conserving water will get competitive with the Brush Up, Show Down tooth
brushing game. Water will become worth its weight as children complete the
Pioneer Water Relay Race. Adults will be able to learn more about ACAP Cape
Breton's programs and how to reduce their environmental impact.


"Now in its second year, the CBRM Water Fun Fair will be bigger and better,"
notes Susan King, Executive Director of ACAP Cape Breton. "Environmental
education provides children with the tools to make sustainable daily and
long-term decisions while having fun. These interactive activities will
touch on everything from water conservation to wastewater and allow for
learning through doing."


The event is free and open to the public. Throughout the two days there will
be appearances from the CBRM Water Utility water drop mascot, Tappy, and
prize draws.  Children who play one game from each station will be eligible
to enter draws for prizes. On Saturday afternoon, the winners of the Healthy
Water, Healthy Me water conservation poster contest will be announced at an
awards ceremony.


The Atlantic Coastal Action Program (ACAP) Cape Breton is a non-profit,
charitable community organization. Located at 582 George Street in Sydney,
this dynamic group integrates environmental, social and economic factors
into projects focusing on action, education and ecosystem planning.
