Don't be frightened by the sight of prehistoric animals at Prince Charles Public School this Tuesday, June 21st. The theme for this year's Verona Cattail Festival parade is Dinosaurs, Dragons and Ducks. Cameron, the Bog Lemming, who is the mascot for the festival, has invited the children to a Dress Up Day in the gym. The children will use their imagination and dress up in theme costume. Each child participating will be given a coupon for a special Cameron Treat and an invitation to be in the Festival Parade. Five children will each receive a pair of free Adult Day passes to the Festival.
