How-To Fest comes to Echo April 18

Packed with 20 different sessions for all ages, there’s sure to be something for everyone.

The second annual How–To in 45 Fest is coming to Echo Centre on April 18.

Packed with 20 different sessions for all ages, there’s sure to be something for everyone.

“There’s a wide variety of topics. We’ve got some fitness focused sessions including yoga, a workout and personal planning session, stuff do with iPads,” city recreation programmer Nathan Kwan said. “It’s all over the map. The idea was to make it broad so that hopefully we’d get something for everyone.”

The How-To Fest was inspired by a similar library event in Kentucky.

“It just seemed like a fun way to show the community what kind of knowledge,” Nathan Kwan said. “We also have the Lime’N food truck coming.”

Last year, 300 people came to the event co-hosted by the city and the Vancouver Island Regional Library. This year, the event takes place on Saturday, April 18 at Echo Centre. Sessions are 45 minutes or less and admission is free. For more information, call Echo Centre at 250-723-2181 or visit www.portalberni.ca/2015-how-45-fest.
