The grounds are snow covered, but the warm-up tent, food vendors, face painting, balloon twisting, and stage performances are cleared of snow and fully accessible. There are also accessible washrooms on-site.
The Indoor Playland and Live Children’s Stage is located at the Charlottetown Eastlink Centre. There will be food vendors, inflatables, a petting zoo and lots of performances, including Treehouse TV's Splash’N Boots, Brent and Sarah's comedy magic show, the "Nearly World-Famous" DuffleBag Theatre in Beauty & the Beast and Little Red Riding Hood. The venue is fully accessible from the main entrance off of Kensington Road.
