Parents and teachers gearing up to take their kids to the annual Children’s Festival in Whitecourt this spring will have to wait another year.

The town of Whitecourt has moved to make it a biennial event.

Mayor Maryann Chichak on the decision.

Chichak says some children only get one field trip a year, so attendance records and costs were contributing factors.

By pushing the event to every other year, the town is expected to save about $11,000 and the festival’s budget will remain the same.
