The games, hosted by the Chantry Island Cham-bettes, will take place from noon until 4 p.m. and will consist of classic games such as: egg on a spoon races, wheelbarrow races, 3-legged race, and potato sack races.

The Games are free to attend and are for children 12 and under. The children will be split into age categories, 4 to 6, 7 to 9 and 9 to 12, said Cham-bette Gay Ashdown June 22. Participants 3 years of age are welcome to participate with a parent partner.

The event will also be cause for fashion as judges are on task to choose the best dressed Canada themed outfit on a baby or toddler.

The Chantry Island Cham-bettes report having more creative things up their sleeves for children for the Sunday afternoon; with parents having an opportunity to reminisce and show off their childhood skills.
