A young audience member is delighted to help Uncle Chris the Clown during the second annual Ashcroft Wellness Festival.

Fun in the park at Ashcroft Wellness Festival

The second annual Wellness Festival draws crowds for a wide range of activities.

The second annual Ashcroft Wellness Festival took place on July 19–20 at the Heritage Park. There was plenty to see and do, and the crowd enjoyed the free entertainment, which included rides on the Historic Hat Creek Ranch stagecoach. Steve “Elvis” Elliott once again rocked the crowd with his delivery of some of the king’s best-known songs, while hands-on science experiments delighted the children. Uncle Chris the Clown was another crowd favourite, entertaining young and old with his blend of magic, melody, and mayhem, and giving a few happy youngsters a chance to assist him on stage. There was food and drink, vendors, a continuous stream of music, a scavenger hunt, workshops, and much more; something for everyone!
