Lola's CloudLola's Cloud is a Toronto-based company, which happens to be only a few months old. We specialize in organic cotton candy, using certified organic cane sugar, and natural extracts and flavouring. Janelle began Lola's Cloud after visiting the Carnival year after year, and disappointedly only being offered sugary cones of Pink and Blue. "There has to be something more!" she thought. And so impulsively,after a few experiments and a little research, she began spinning up delightful flavours for friends and family. So far we've done a few parties and banquets, but this is our biggest event to date, and we are so so thrilled! We will be offering three unique flavours on Fun Day; Watermelon, Peach and Mango, as well as some take-home bags to nibble on afterwards.

Organics LiveOrganics Live delivers certified organic, sustainably produced and locally focused food to homes in your community for less than the cost of shopping retail. Bring the kids to the Organics Live booth to decorate a personal, reusable bag. While there, parents can enter for their chance to win a free organic produce delivery.
