Nickel Carnival Fun Set for July 21

Wouldn’t it be great if everything cost only a nickel? Well for one day, it will! Courtenay Recreation’s Lewis Centre staff are working hard to bring you the annual Nickel Carnival on Friday, July 21 for five to 11 years with adult.

Kids can try their hand at carnival games with prizes to be won and oodles of fun to be had. Visit our face-painters to have their face transformed into a work of art, or take a cakewalk on the wild side.

The carnival will run from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m.

Admission is $3, with $2 returned in carnival tickets. Come hungry and visit the concession booth, where there will be hot dogs, drinks and more, each for under a dollar.

This year’s theme is Outer Space. Come prepared in a spaced out costume to be the star of the show. Our judges will be doing some extra-terrestrial exploration for the best alien, astronaut or planet costume in the stratosphere!
