KidsInclusive kicked off the holiday season with their first ever float in Downtown Kingston’s Nighttime Santa Claus parade on Saturday November 18th. The float’s theme was “Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer – Celebrate Differences”. We were thrilled that the rain held off and everyone had a great night. Thank you to all our little elves, reindeers and their families who participated in the parade and to Aarde Construction for donating their truck and flat bed for the float!
What a Spook-tacular Day!

Youth came dressed in their favourite costume for an afternoon filled with crafts, karaoke and trick or treating. Above-right, KidsInclusive had a very special visit from Dexter, the evil scientist (Justin V) and Mini Mouse (Katelyn S)!
On The Road Again!
Janessa Gerhardt has a cool, new set of wheels thanks to Queen’s University engineer, Claire Davies and her team of 4th year students (Building and Designing Assistive Technology Lab).
Due to Janessa’s limisted range of motion she was unable to pedal a traditional bicycle. The students redesigned the crankshaft of a 3-wheel bike along with other design modifications, and now Janessa has wheels again! Go Janessa!
