Teddy Bear Fair Underway At The Hospital

The 22nd Annual Teddy Bear Fair is happening today at the Saint John Regional Hospital.

Kids can bandage up their teddy bears, and at the same time gain hands-on experience in a hospital.

Angela Watling, the event organizer tells CHSJ news that the interactive event helps children learn more about hospitals. She says it introduces kids and their parents to a hospital setting, and raises funds for children's programs at the Saint John Regional Hospital.

The fair includes a casting clinic for teddy bears to get bandaged, and a surgery clinic. The event takes place today from 9am-3pm
