Summer carnival delights in Kentville
An organization that grants lifechanging wishes for children with critical illnesses is getting a boost from a Kings County business.
The second annual Capital Paper Summer Carnival in support of Make-a-wish was hosted at the Centennial Arena in Kentville on June 2.
“This year it’s been steady,” said Capital Paper marketing co-ordinator Priscilla Couture.
Variety was the name of the game at the carnival. The event featured live music, carnival games, snacks, a barbecue, inflatable bouncers, and photo ops with Pikachu and Catboy.
The goal was to create an event that raised funds for an organization that regularly makes a difference in the lives of local families. The carnival idea seemed like a fitting way to make this happen, Couture said.
“If you’re raising money for a kids’ charity why not make the kids a part of it?”
