Carnival games, face painting, a petting zoo and more will entertain families at Spring Fling 2014, being held Saturday May 3 from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. on church grounds at 160 Bedford Center Road in Bedford Hills. The fun-filled community outreach day, sponsored by Bedford Community Church, will be geared towards families with children through fifth grade.
When carnival-goers enter the fairground, each child will receive a goody bag filled with tickets for every activity. About a dozen favorite carnival games, including Hoop Shot, Frog Flip, Rainbow Roll and Big Mouth Clown, will be up for play – prizes being handed out to everyone who plays. Children looking to burn extra energy stored up over the winter can also climb into two bounce houses, one shaped liked Noah’s Ark and one like a giant carousel. There will also be relay races and organized games scheduled throughout the afternoon.
The petting zoo will feature a pony, lambs, ducks and chickens. Face painters will give kids colorful new looks, and clowns will be on the grounds handing out colorful balloon hats and animals.
In the story tent, children and adults of all ages can take a break while listening to faith-building stories. Kids can also complete a variety of projects at the craft tables, bringing them home as souvenirs from the day.
Topping off the carnival excitement, food and drinks – like hot dogs, popcorn, snow cones, and cotton candy – will be available throughout the day.
Admission, food, and activities are free of charge. The event will be bilingual and host Spanish-speaking organizers on the grounds.
