Sun Bear Children’s Festival

The family wildlife Sun Bear Children’s Festival is celebrating its fifth anniversary this year.

And to make the celebration even more special, the festival has added a Twilight Program the night before to kick off the festival with a special Indigenous Ceremony and nocturnal program.
