Kids TownHall B
Hours: noon – 9 p.m.
Date: Daily, July 19 – 28
Location: Hall B, Edmonton EXPO Centre
The world can seem impossibly big when you’re an adult—but that’s nothing compared to how it feels to a child. Every step outside their home is an adventure in a vast environment they are still learning how to deal with and understand. But what if there was a place built specifically with them in mind—where they could safely explore and learn all about the world they’re growing up in? We call it Kids Town.
Toytopia presented by Denny’s
Included in your gate admission, K-Days invites you to a world of rediscovery, delight and wonder – in Toytopia! Toytopia visitors learn about the origins of toys, who made them and why they are fun and dear to us. Families will discover why some toys succeeded and some failed, which toys have become collector’s items and why. Toytopia satisfies the curiosity of guests of all ages with beautiful, compelling and informative displays.
Toytopia photo opportunities include a 8-foot Etch-A-Sketch – the world’s largest! Toytopia is not just about toys but also real working video arcade games from the 1970’s and 80’s are available for play! There’s even a life-size dollhouse!
This 8,000 square foot interactive and life-size display is included in your gate admission and will have your family feeling everything from excitement to nostalgia to wonder!
