BANANAS UnPeeled Children’s Carnival held on April 14, 2018 at Urban Adamah was a one-of-a-kind family event. Yes, it was a huge success! We owe it to no one else but our community that includes YOU. More than 750 people attended the event. What a great sense of community— parents, caregivers, and children all added to the fun. As a result, the event turned out to be a lively one that made parents excited and left kids smiling and asking for more.
The highlights of the event were live shows and games. Our performers Risa Lenore, Grampa Clyde, Mariela’s music time, Chad Norris, and Kirah Caminos entertained the crowd and created a joyful experience for all the little learners. Children moved and grooved to the much loved rhymes and songs. They sang, played with drums, clapped, laughed, and jumped. In addition, the live shows kept the children engaged as they explored their creativity through pretend play.
Children had the opportunity to enjoy many fun-filled games like the penny toss, ring toss, tic-tac-toe, buried treasure, bean bag toss, duck matching, and many more. There were terrific prizes for the children to take home. They created excitement among the kids as they could trade in their tickets to win more from the prize booth. Face painting was a popular choice for all! Our talented volunteers patiently painted beautiful designs and kept the long line moving along at a fast pace. Children and adults got a range of pictures on their face, from animals, flowers, butterflies to hearts and stars.
Kids were excited to see the fire truck when it arrived. They sat in it like a real firefighter and had the opportunity to pose for photos. The officers made their presence even more special by giving out favors. The snack shack was a crowd pleaser for who does not love hot dogs and nachos. The Italian food truck La Cosa Nostra sold delicious pasta and arancini, perfect for a carnival.
Parents loved being at the carnival, socializing with other families while their kids explored on their own in a safe environment. Each child left with memories of a great day. A huge thank you to all of you for attending the carnival and making it a success. We could only have made this carnival a memorable one because of you. The goal of the event was to provide family fun for all, especially to children. In addition, raise money so that we can invest in kids and make every child’s dream come true.
