The Children's Art Festival will return to Riverside Park in September.

The free one-day event, which gives children the chance to try out different art forms, will take place on Sept. 17 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The theme this year is Rivers to Rainbows, which the event's host, the Kamloops Arts Council, says is all about the water, earth and sky around us.

The arts council said crafts and activities will be encourage to make use of recycled materials.

Colourful clothing is also recommended, as there will be an attempt to create the "biggest human rainbow."
