With spring in full swing, there are plenty of festivities taking place in Markham to keep your agenda packed! Saturday, May 4 marks the second annual Markham Youth Expo. This event is hosted by the Mayor's Youth Task Force, which is a subsidiary of the Markham Council consisting largely of local youth, as well as town councillors and the Markham mayor. Held at the Markham Civic Center at Warden and Highway 7, the event will run from noon to 11pm.
There will be raffle prizes, including a chance to win two Air Canada tickets to a North American destination of your choice, a 5th generation iPod and gift cards. There will be various activities to keep you entertained well into the night, such as paintball and basketball matches. You can also watch people get dunked in a dunk tank and take pictures with friends in the photo booth. Plenty of food vendors will be on hand to serve up festival favourites, such as roasted corn and hot dogs.
Further, there will be a talent show featuring lots of singing, dancing and much more, as well as a dance competition with contestants from all across the GTA - the competition is sure to be fierce! This is a highly anticipated and free event, and all are welcome!
