The torch will be making its way through Moose Jaw during its North American route which started in New York and will spend 30 days in Canada, 59 days in the U.S.A. and two days in Mexico.
"This is the first time we're participating in the Peace Run, an international torch relay that goes through 80 countries and teaches people that peace begins with each individual person," said Margaret Moran, CEO of Wakamow Valley who was contacted by the run to participate.
"They're bringing the torch in at 1 p.m. and we invite kids to run around the oval with them so that they can be a part of this Peace Run with them."
Kids Day will also provide entertainment throughout the day along with story telling, critter dipping, inflatables, water canoe rides, first nation story telling and face painting.
The event is free, and runs from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m. at Wakamow Valley.
Wakamow Valley is also starting free walking tours starting in July. Read all about it here.
