March Break 2015


The March Break is finally here! For the vast majority of children and teens, the countdown probably began the first week in January, so let’s make it worth the wait. If you’re leaving our fine city for somewhere warm – enjoy yourself! If you’re sticking around London and your kids aren’t signed up for camps (if you’re scrambling, here is our list), here are some of the highlights of what is going on:


Fleetway is ready to celebrate the March Break all week with bowling from 9:00am to 6:00pm (extended to 2:00am on Friday), the rock wall from 11:00am to 8:00pm (extended to 11:30pm on Friday), and all day fun with glow-golf, billiards, and the Pladium Lite games room.


Westmount has daily fun for the family with the VOCPRI Charity Used Book Sale daily, Salthaven Wildlife Presentations on March 16, 17, and 20th, and The Fossil Guy on March 18 and 19. See the link for times and more information.

Birthday Parties at Home


Birthday parties have come a long way since we were children. There was a time when home parties were the only option – Musical Chairs, Pass the Parcel, and that poor donkey who had lost his tail. The times have changed! No longer are the parents responsible for doing all of the work. Make a call, tidy up your home, get a cake, and let these folks do the rest!


If your birthday boy or girl is a big fan of Super Heroes, then bring on the A1 Hero team! They have multiple party options for most of their themes: Star Warriors, Amazing Spider Superhero, the Avenging Superheroes, the Bat superhero, the Ninja Turtles superheroes, and the Man of Steel. Your child will believe their favourite hero is right there in their home! With scripts and activities, these superheroes will rock your party. See HERE for more information.


This is classic entertainment at it’s best! Balloon sculpting, face painting, glitter tattoos, dress up, magic shows, popcorn, cotton candy, crafts, pirates, princesses and whatever else you can imagine! With multiple party packages and options to choose from, these parties cater to all ages and all sizes of groups. See HERE for more information.


What could be better than a zoo brought to you? Little Ray’s will combine education and fun with their collection of animals for your guests to learn about and interact with. Their parties can be done inside or outside (under certain conditions) and can accommodate any sized group. See HERE for more information.


Is there anything better than some hands-on, crazy, fun learning? Mad Science brings the lab to you with five birthday party topics and three party packages. They cater to children ages 5 to 12 and guests will get to take home some science fun when they leave the party. There is no limit to the number of kids you have at your party, they just need to know in advance so that they can bring enough supplies! See HERE for more information.


My Perfect Princess Party has so many options for your birthday girl or boy! They have parties with all of the most popular princesses – including Anna and Elsa! – as well as Tinkerbell, Draculaura from Monster High, and even a Pop Star Dance Party option! These parties are great for children 3 to 11 and can accommodate any number of guests. See HERE for more information.


What could be sweeter than a cupcake mani/pedi, a sparkle tattoo and a lot of fun? The ladies at Pampered Soles bring the spa to your house with three party packages to choose from. The parties are for up to 6 guests with the option of adding more children for an additional charge. This is the perfect addition to a slumber party or a party for older children. See HERE for more information.


If your goal is to wow and amaze your party guests, then Ricky Magic is where it’s at! Ricky has four magical party options to choose from, beginning with the basic 35 minute engaging magic show, the 45 minute show where your child (sort of!) disappears, the 60 minute show that has your child levitating and a magical bunny appears, or the whole 90 minute enchilada!
