Congratulations to the 2015 “Tell Your Tale” contest winners!
At Telling Tales our goal is to bring stories to life. One way we do this is by having literary and historical characters in costume, strolling around the Festival talking to kids.
We are very fortunate to have Westfield Heritage Village volunteers dressed as historical characters and Creative Theatre Company acting students return each year to portray the ever entertaining literary characters.
The costumed characters are always a big hit with the crowds at Telling Tales, that’s why we offer a “Tell Your Tale” contest. During the Festival children ages 5-16 are encouraged to visit with many of the characters they find walking around Westfield. Then they can draw or write something interesting they learned from the characters.
This year’s winners will receive lots of amazing prizes: Family passes to Westfield Heritage Village, Hamilton Conservation Authority and Art Gallery of Hamilton, a voucher for Theatre Aquarius production for the 2015-16 season, Mabel’s Labels personalized name stickers, and lots of books! Over 12 prizes were awarded!
We received many fabulous entries this year. It was hard to make a choice, but our expert panel of judges from Westfield Heritage Village and the Creative Theatre Company helped select the top three in each age category. Thank you everyone for entering!
Congratulations to all of the winners
