Fun & games at FANS carnival

No fewer than three inflatable “bouncy” houses will be featured at the annual Fun-draiser carnival sponsored by Island Rec’s support group, FANS.

Activities get under way at the county Fairgrounds at 11 a.m., Saturday, Nov. 16, and wrap up at 2 p.m.; admission is free.

In addition to bouncy houses, and a Rube Goldberg-type creation by island architect David Waldron, FANS yearly carnival will have some 20 game booths available. The list includes Bursting Balloon Darts, Take a Cake Cakewalk, Digging for Diamonds and Penguin Fish Fling.

Carnival food favorites, like cotton candy and sno-cones, and chef Tommy Pieples’ Fan Cafe,  offering hamburgers, hot dogs and other festive fare, will be available as well.

Tickets of $1 can be purchased for games and food; items range from $1-$4 each. Carnival proceeds benefit Island Rec programs, such as Movies in the Park. For more information, contact Kathy Cromer, 370-5315.
