The Kids’ Gallery — Just Like Me: Explore, Imagine, Create

On December 21, come visit the AGO for the opening of The Kids’ Gallery, a space created especially for children and you. Together you can experience art first-hand, learn and have fun.

In this first exhibition of paintings and sculptures, you’ll encounter children from faraway times and places. Some are outside and some are at home, spending time with their family, friends and pets. Has life really changed that much over the years?

Check out the works of art. Make a portrait. Explore the books. Relax and stay a while.

Exhibition-inspired costumes and props are available for visitors to design, dress up and pose for their own portraits. Families are encouraged to post their photographs on Instagram with the #AGOkidsgallery hashtag to see their portrait appear on a screen in the space. The Kids’ Gallery activity centre also includes art books and a drawing station for budding artists inspired by the exhibited works.

Organized by the Art Gallery of Ontario.

CNE Announes The Return of HorseCapades

Fun and interactive horse show is FREE to enjoy before the CNE officially opens its gates.

The fun of the Canadian National Exhibition (CNE) gallops into Toronto early with HorseCapades, a delightful and interactive program that introduces fans of all ages to the wonder of horses. In its 10th consecutive year, HorseCapades returns to the CNE beginning July 27, 2014, at the Horse Place, Exhibition Place. It offers visitors the chance to pet and feed horses, learn about grooming and shoeing, guess a horse’s weight, meet a mare and foal, as well as enjoy a horse-drawn wagon ride.

NEW this year, HorseCapades is expanding to include a spectacular trick-riding show, HorsePower Live!, debuting on July 27. Set to original music, HorsePower Live! showcases the pageantry, power, and precision of riders and horses performing remarkable feats such as barrel racing, trick riding, roping, and hip hop dressage in the Horse Palace Ring.

“HorseCapades and HorsePower Live! bring the enchantment of horses to the heart of the city,” says David Bednar, CNE General Manager. “Families don’t have to travel far to enjoy a taste of the rural life and get up close with one of nature’s most intelligent animals. It’s fun, educational, and a great way to spend the day indoors – not to mention it’s free for everyone!”

HorseCapades is truly a fun and affordable outing for the entire family, individuals and groups to escape the city life. Groups of 10 or more people are asked to make reservations by emailing horsecapades@theex.com, or go to www.TheEX.com for more information.

HorseCapades Interactive Program Schedule: July 27 – August 14 *.

Time: 11:00am – 2:00pm, daily.
