Kids’ Carnival at Byemoor brings joy to the community

From a petting zoo to bouncy castle, the carnival was a riot for kids in Byemoor and area.

The Byemoor arena was abuzz with kids as they came in, excited to participate in the carnival on Saturday afternoon, Aug. 19.

There was a petting zoo, bouncy castle, face painting, glitter tattoos, and kids’ games organized throughout, from 1 to 4 p.m. while the carnival was on.

This was the third year of the event, and it sure didn’t disappoint with 60 kids taking part in all the activities.

“The kids had a great time, and it’s just nice for them to have a special event, while their parents are busy playing ball at the diamonds,” said Rebecca Schofer, main event organizer. “We will surely have it next year, and continue to run this event.”

The animals in the petting zoo were provided by Paige Jones and Teanne Johnson.
