In the fall of 2012, CROSS COUNTRY FUN HUNT set out to uncover the â€œMost Fun Spot in Canadaâ€, challenging Canadian kids to share their favourite local fun spots by uploading videos and pictures online and having viewers vote a winner. Host, Jordan Francis (Camp Rock, Connor Undercover) embarked on a cross-country road trip visiting the places with the most votes in every province. During Jordanâ€™s visit to the eventual winning community of Stratford, P.E.I., young ambassador Lacey showed Canadians her picturesque town over a traditional lobster boat lunch and a hot-air balloon ride.
Over 14,000 Canadians cast their online votes to crown a winner, with Stratford, P.E.I. taking the coveted title of â€œMost Fun Spot in Canadaâ€ and winning the grand-prize concert. CROSS COUNTRY FUN HUNT â€˜s final episode, airing March 2 on Kidsâ€™ CBC, features footage from the sold-out concert held on January 27, as well as a look at Laceyâ€™s tour of Stratford with Jordan and Victoria.
