Town of Cochrane's 12th annual Children's Festival is coming to town May 28.

Dr Von Houligan's 'Carnival of Calamities' is coming back for a second year in a row.

The carnival will be performing three shows at 10 am, 1 pm, and 4 pm.

Deb Maxwell, Town of Cochrane, Recreation Programmer says the show will provide a whole lot of family entertainment.

"It is an old fashioned carnival with jugglers, and magicians, and we have other entertainment going on."

Maxwell adds sideline entertainment will keep children occupied outside of the show times.

"We have some sideshow events going on to get the kids involved in the production. There is fun for all ages, there is even going to be a bubble show.

The big circus tent will be set up in Cochrane Ranche Historic Park, seat are limited to 250 per show and you can purchase tickets here.
