Winter carnival this weekend

A family-friendly carnival will break up the doldrums of winter this Saturday, March 1, at Granville High School.

The second-annual event, which will be held from 5 to 7 p.m. inside the high school gymnasium, is completely free.

Pastor Aaron Brown of Mettowee Valley Church, which is sponsoring the carnival, said last year between 150 and 175 people attended.

“It seemed like the kids and teenagers had a really good time,” he said. Perhaps one of the biggest highlights was a huge, inflatable obstacle course that took up the width of the gym.

“The course is set up so two people race each other, so anybody of any age can have fun with that,” Brown said.

Other activities will include a variety of games and children’s activities such as face painting and balloon animals. There will also be a variety of refreshments including hot dogs, snow cones, pop corn, cotton candy and drinks.

“Our goal is to provide an opportunity for the family to do something on a Saturday night,” Brown said.

This year there will be a number of free door prizes, including McDonald’s gift cards and Stewart’s Shops milkshake gift certificates.

For more information about the event call Pastor Aaron Brown at 508-404-9681.
