BANANAS is excited to host the 2nd Annual UnPeeled Children’s Carnival this year! Join us for an afternoon of spring-inspired fun and excitement. UnPeeled is a FREE children’s carnival where the entire family can enjoy great food, fun games, and lots of music and dance.
Fun-filled, age-appropriate activities include storytime, art, face painting, a petting zoo, and an opportunity to explore the Berkeley Fire Department fire truck! Children can sit in the truck, pose like a real firefighter, and take photos. Carnival games include penny toss, ring toss, tic tac toe, buried treasure, bean bag toss, duck matching, and many more. All children will leave with take-home prizes.
To add even more excitement to the day, there will be live shows from local performers. This is a great opportunity to let your little one tap into their creative side and sing along and dance to their favorite bilingual songs and nursery rhymes.
