This summer a super cool festival is coming to Vancouver – Canadian E-Fest! There will be activities, music and two electric car races! 12 celebrities driving single seat 3 wheel Solo cars will race around the track in False Creek. The Formula E series will hit the track with 22 racers from around the world competing in the first ever Vancouver E-Prix. The drivers in both races will be escorted onto the track by Grid Kidz.
WHAT’S A GRID KID?
Grid Kidz are children between the ages of 8 – 12 years of age who have made a pledge for sustainability.
There are 34 spots to be won!
In addition to being on track, Grid Kidz will be able to watch the races from a special section in the Grandstand and get the chance to explore all the Canadian E-Fest activities during the day(s) – including Science World.
As a Grid Kid you will be given a T-shirt, hat, backpack and other treats.
