Mother’s Day Things to Do

What to Do While Waiting In Line with Children

Poco-Mothers-Day1The most popular rides and attractions always have the biggest line ups. Why not take this opportunity to entertain your kids while you wait? Some of the most memorable time I have spent with little people is in the car or in a line up. I think it’s because I have a captured audience.

Over the last two decades, I have told the little people in my life an ongoing story that we invented together. It would become the Story of Tonga, our very own Fairy Tale. We tell it over and over again, each time we add something new.

Poco-Mothers-Day1What a perfectly wonderful weekend to celebrate and pay tribute to all the Mother’s out there!

On Saturday morning the streets were jam packed with families who sat patiently anticipating the great Poco May Days parade which promenaded through the quiet streets in the Community of Port Coquitlam in celebration of Poco May Days.

When the parade was over, our Midway filled with smiling, excited slightly sun-kissed little faces! The suddenly warm and welcome Carnival sunshine stayed over us all weekend during Poco May Days.

What a pleasure for all of us to watch all the Moms enjoying time spent with their children as the children took their Moms for a free a free ride on Mother’s Day.

Leigh-Square-Train-300x176Many years ago a small number of our Carnival Rides were set up at Leigh Square in Port Coquitlam. In those years there was only room for five carnival rides tucked into the square and down the back alleys of Leigh Square in Port Coquitlam, BC. After the parade was over, we saw many families come and enjoy our whimsical kiddie rides.

Just down the road at the arena West Coast Amusements had their Carnival rides set up for the PoCo May Days Celebration weekend. This was quite a unique situation in the Amusement Industry. It’s very rare for two Amusement Companies to work in two locations just a block away from each other — rare but certainly not impossible.
