Saturday June 22, 2013 was the very first annual Healthy Living Festival in the downtown area of Smiths Falls. There was something for everyone.
There was a rock climbing wall and the kids enjoyed climbing and challenging themselves.Then the inflatable obstacle course was a hit as well.
The obstacle course presented by “Coach Brian” was a great hit with adults and kids alike trying to beat the best time.
The Smiths Falls Police Association partnered with the Health Unit and the Free Methodist Church to run a Bike Rodeo. Participants in the Bike Rodeo were given the opportunity to have a helmet check and learn about bike safety.
Festival organizers said community support was incredible during and following the event and members of the public were very supportive of the event, expressing their thanks to the committee for bringing the event to Smiths Falls.
The Healthy Living Festival committee members are already making plans for next year’s event, which will take place on June 21, 2014, in downtown Smiths Falls.
“Next year will be bigger and better,” Hogue said. “This event is here to stay.”
